Abstract

The clinical records of 53 patients who had head injury and facial trauma were reviewed and analyzed to ascertain what affect head injury had on the repair of facial fractures. The study was designed to establish the incidence of complications and to discover what factors contributed to untoward sequela in such patients. It was found that the neurologically injured patient developed postoperative facial fracture complications, particularly in the mandible, more frequently than those facial trauma patients who were not neurologically compromised.
