Motor Bike Accident is a Main Cause of Maxillofacial Fractures Presenting to Cairo University Hospitals: A Retrospective Study
Maxillofacial fractures are serious and frequent injuries, with costly management in terms of both time and money.
Among the most important etiologies for maxillofacial injuries, Road Traffic Accidents stand out in many developing
countries, including Egypt. Motor Bike Accidents present an important share in road traffic accident victims in general,
and in Maxillofacial injuries in particular. The aim of the study was to evaluate impact of Motor Bike Accidents, as an
etiology of maxillofacial trauma fractures. This is a cross sectional retrospective study of Maxillofacial fracture
patients admitted Cairo University (Kasr Al-Aini) Emergency hospital over a one-year period. Data was collected on
the nature of injuries, the etiology of trauma, and demographic criteria of patients. Total Maxillofacial fracture
patients identified were 176 patients. The majority of patients were males, below 40 years. The most common etiology
among them was Road Traffic Accidents, with the biggest share for 2-3 wheeled Motor Bike Accidents. The most
frequently encountered fracture among motor bike riders was zygomatic fracture. Considering the big number of motor
cycles registered in Egypt, their frequent involvement in road traffic accidents with grave injuries, and the disregard
among their riders for the use of safety helmets, urgent steps need to be taken towards law legislation and development
of community awreness about road safety for motor cycle riders.
Key words: Maxillofacial, fracture, road traffic accident, motor bike accident.
