Abstract
In this study, we attempted to compare facial trauma of late-middle-age patients (55Y64 years, LM group) and old-age patients (965 years old, OL group). The goal of this study was to evaluate the natural history of facial trauma in geriatric patients. The medical record of patients older than 55 years seeking treatment for facial trauma between March 2006 and February 2009 were reviewed, and parameters were collected. Seven hundred seventy-two patients (553 male, 219 female) were analyzed. There were 438 patients of the LM group (55Y64 years old) and 334 patients of the OL group (965 years old). In men (n = 553), the number of patients within the LM group (n = 336, 60.8%) was greater than the number in the OL group (n = 217, 39.2%). Of the 219 women, the number within the OL group (n = 117, 53.4%) was greater than that within the LM group (n = 102, 46.6%) (P = 0.000, W2 ). Facial lacerations comprised a significantly higher proportion in the OL group (79.3%) than that in the ML group (
