Estimating the Global Incidence of Femoral Fracture from Road Traffic Collisions: A Literature Review.

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Worldwide, road injuries cause over 1.3 million deaths and many more disabilities annually, disproportionately affecting the young and the poor. Approximately one in ten road injuries involves a femoral shaft fracture that is most effectively treated with surgery. Current femoral shaft fracture incidence according to country and age group is unknown and difficult to measure directly but is critical to designing and evaluating interventions.
