Introduction. The increasing incidence of accidents
expose individuals to a variety of traumas. With
maxillofacial trauma being one of the most common
and considering lack of reports on the incidence of
maxillofacial injuries in Isfahan, the present study
aimed to assess the oral and maxillofacial injuries
in patients referred to Amin hospital in order to
achieve better diagnostics, treatment and prevention
of complications. Material and methods. In this
descriptive cross-sectional study, the medical records
of patients who sustained maxillofacial injuries and
where referred to Amin hospital of Isfahan were
evaluated within March 2015-2016. Hours, days and
months of referral, duration of hospitalization, age,
sex, marital status, cause of injuries, type and site of
hard and soft tissue injuries, mean size of lacerations,
related injuries and type of treatment plan were
recorded. Result. The majority of patients were male (74%) and single (59/58%). Most subjects were in their
twenties. Summer time on Thursdays and Saturdays
between 6-12 PM were the most visited times. The
patients mostly stayed 0-5 days in hospital. Injuries
were mostly caused by road traffic accidents. The most
common site of injuries was the nose (21/99%). In soft
tissue injuries, lacerations were the most common with
the longest ones in the forehead. Dental and orthopedic
were the most related injuries. The most common bone
fracture treatment was close reduction. Conclusion.
Population’s geographic and cultural features can
affect the incidence of maxillofacial injuries, which
will in return affect the treatment plans. Therefore,
considering these parameters would be useful for
appropriate health care policy and management
protocols in every society.
