Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This paper reviews 105 fatal cases of blunt trauma, in which death occurred after arrival at hospital. Data are presented with reference to age, sex, nature of injuries and length of stay. An assessment was made as to whether any major lesions remained undiagnosed or were undertreated; 16 per cent of these deaths were found to be due, at least in part, to such lesions.
