Bomb Blast Imaging Findings Treatment and Clinical Course of Extremity Traumas

Tahtabasi, M., Er, S., Karasu, R., and Ucaroglu, E. (2021). Bomb Blast: Imaging Findings, Treatment and Clinical Course of Extremity Traumas. BMC Emergency Medicine. 21: 28.
A review of 101 patients with injuries caused by bomb explosions was conducted to determine severity and types of injury. Three quarters presented with at least one fracture; 91.2% were open and 8.8% were closed. Open fractures were more likely to affect the femur and tibia. These findings can help hospitals better prepare to treat victims of bomb blasts.
