Background & Aim: Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the leading causes of death and disability. The aim of this study was to evaluate the CT scan findings of head trauma patients referred to the emergency department of Besat Hospital in Sanandaj from 2016 to 2017.
Materials & Methods: In this cross-sectional study, data of 622 medical records of head trauma patients who had referred to the emergency department of Besat Hospital in Sanandaj were extracted and evaluated. SPPS 22 software was used for data analysis.
Results: The mean age of the entire men and women were 37.7 ±22 and 40.8±29.6 years, respectively. The overall male to female ratio was 1:3.8. The most common causes of TBI were road traffic accident (56.1%), falls (25.4%), fall to the ground (8.7%), dispute (2.6%), bicycle (1.6%), seizure (1.6%) and others (4.8%). The most common CT scan head injury related findings were: skull fractures (37.3%), epidural hematoma (19.3%), subdural hematoma (46.1%), subarachnoid hemorrhage (21.7%), intraparenchymal hematoma (15.2%), intraventricular hemorrhage (8.7%), brain contusion (55%), and brain edema (13.6%). The most common clinical symptoms were a headache (25.4%) and nausea (10%).
Conclusion: One of the most important causes of brain injuries in the age group of the labor force, especially for men in the age range of 21-30 years in Kurdistan province is road accidents. Patientschr('39') age data for head injury as well as the cause of the injury should be considered during preventive planning and care services.
