Author: Faruquzzaman, M. Moniruzzaman, T. Mohiuddin

Abstract:  This study was conducted from 10.02.08 to 23.05.09 in general surgery wards of Chittagong Medical College Hospital, Bangladesh with multi-factorial views of clinical aspects and an alarming model image in such relation was depicted. 188 (72.9 %) patients in this study out of 258 were male it was and found that different types of trauma had been relatively higher in 51–70 yrs (35.1 %) age group followed by 31–50 yrs (28.7 %) age group in case of male subjects. On the contrary, in female, those were quite higher in 11–30 yrs (31.4 %) age group followed by 51–70 yrs (24.8 %) age group. As for the mortality, this study suggest that it was significantly higher in case of female subjects (31.4 %) (22) in relation to male subjects (18.1 %) (34). But to our knowledge probably it has no clinical significance at all. Rather, it may have socio-economic associations, as for instance- traditional negligence to female in developing countries like Bangladesh. Another remarkable observation that was clear in this study was variation in different levels of morbidity. In male, 30.9 % patients had morbidity from 1 week to 1 month; followed by 28.7 % patients with morbidity less than 1 week, whereas, in case of female, it was 25.7 % and 20 %, respectively. With regard to morbidity over 1 month 23.4 % male and 22.9 % female were found in this group and in case of both male and female, the so called p-values were quite significant. This study also reflects that majority of trauma occurred due to road traffic accidents (RTAs) (24.5 %) followed by natural disasters (21.3 %) and assault (17 %) in case of male, whereas, in female 34.3 % trauma occurred by assault and homicidal attempts followed by 20 % due to natural disaster. One of the most remarkable associations of traumatic patients was that 82.3 % (28) of all deaths occurred in the first 24 hours of injury in male and on the other hand, it was 72.7 % (16) in case of female patients .

Keywords: trauma, surgery, death, homicidal attempts, natural disaster.
