A depressed skull fracture is an inward buckling of the skull bones. It is referred to as a ping-pong ball fracture in neonates; in older children, some fractures take a cup shape mimicking 'ping. Depressed skull fractures result from a significant force. It is estimated that 30% of depressed skull fractures in children have associated intracranial injuries. In addition to intracranial haemorrhage, complications such as compression of underlying brain parenchyma, intraparenchymal bone fragments and cosmetic deformity are also seen.

Depressed skull fracture is a type of traumatic brain injury often seen secondary to assault. It can lead to infection, cosmetic deformity, intracranial hematoma, or a local mass effect on underlying brain tissue, leading to neurological deficits with possibility of early or delayed seizures. However, a midline depressed skull fracture (MDSF), in addition to the abovementioned complications.
Approximately once a month, as in the present report, a patient presents with a depressed skull fracture. Per neurosurgical guidelines, all compound skull fractures with evidence of dural penetration require emergent neurosurgical intervention, if meaningful recovery is possible. s. Methods: From October to December , 38 patients with comminuted skull fractures were admitted to the hospital. All patients underwent three-dimensional reconstruction of computed tomography scan images. Digital subtraction angiography or magnetic resonance venography was performed to find out the venous sinus. The clinical findings of the patients were significant .

Depressed fracture: Where the fracture causes displacement of the bone toward the brain. Compound fracture: Where there is a break in the skin and a splintering of the skull : Bethany Cadman.
Depressed skull fractures result in the bone of the skull vault being folded (depressed) inward into the cerebral parenchyma. It is usually the result of a high energy impact to the skull. Pathology These mostly (~75%) occur in the frontopariet. Depressed Skull Fracture.
A skull fracture happens when a force sufficiently strong enough to break the bone strikes the skull.
We see this type of injury when someone falls and hits their head on the ground, during a car accident, or any other form of head trauma. A depressed skull fracture is considered a traumatic injury.
Also known as a compound fracture, an open fracture occurs when the skin is broken and the bone emerges. Depressed facture This refers to a fracture that causes the skull Author: Mary Ellen Ellis. Compound depressed skull fractures occur when there is a laceration over the fracture, putting the internal cranial cavity in contact with the outside environment, increasing the risk of contamination and infection.
In complex depressed fractures, the dura mater is lty: Emergency medicine. COMPOUND DEPRESSED FRACTURES OF THE SKULL INVOLVING THE SUPERIOR LONGITUDINAL SINUS* ABRAHAM KAPLAN, M.D. NEW YORK, NEW YORK THE importance and seriousness of a skull fragments was elevated there was compound fracture of the skull in- profuse bleeding from the lacerated sinus.
volving the large venous sinuses of the The wound was packed. Impact of small, hard objects causes depressed fractures. In this case, energy dissipation from the impact results in skull fracture immediately beneath the impacting object.
If the impacting force is substantial, all bone under the site of impact is damaged and skull perforation occurs. In a depressed skull fracture, the major bone depression can occur at the interface of fracture.
Majority of depressed skull fractures occur over frontoparietal region as bone is comparatively thin and prone to trauma Surgical elevation is the standard treatment of depressed skull fractures if depression is equal or more than thickness of.
A skull fracture is considered depressed when any portion of the outer table of the fracture line lies below the normal anatomical position of the inner table. DSFs typically occur when objects with a large amount of kinetic energy (e.g., baseball bat, hammer, rock) make contact with the skull over a.
Indications: Patients with open (compound) cranial fractures depressed greater than the thickness of the cranium should undergo operative intervention to prevent infection.
Patients with open (compound) depressed cranial fractures may be treated nonoperatively if there is no clinical or radiographic evidence of dural penetration, significant intracranial hematoma, depression greater than 1 cm. Surgery for depressed skull fractures has developed over centuries to attain the consensus approaches currently used.
This review outlines the last years of development of surgical approaches to closed and open depressed skull fractures, fractures involving dural venous sinuses and ping-pong fractures involving infants. Treatment recommended for SOME patients in selected patient group.
Operative elevation and repair of dura and cranioplasty should be considered for any patient with a depressed fracture >1 cm, gross cosmetic deformity, evidence of dural tear, or an associated operable intracranial lesion.
Ersahin Y, Mutluer S, Mirzai H, et al. Pediatric depressed skull fractures: analysis of cases. or clinically suspected cranial fractures. Depressed cranial fractures may complicate up to 6% of head injuries in some series (7), and account for significant morbidity and mortality.
Compound fractures account for up to 90% of these injuries (3, 6, 17), and are associated with an infection rate of to % (9, 13, 16, 17), an average. Christopher C. Stewart, in Comprehensive Pediatric Hospital Medicine, Skull Fractures.
Skull fractures may be open or closed and may be linear, comminuted, diastatic, depressed, or basilar. Skull fractures can usually be diagnosed by skull radiographs or computed tomography (CT); however, skull fractures apparent on autopsy are sometimes not noted on imaging. Compound skull fractures refer to splintering of the bone.
When a broken or "crushed" portion of the skull presses in towards the brain, it’s called a depressed skull fracture. When an object, such as a bullet or debris from an explosion, pierces the skull, a person has a penetrating skull fracture.
Probably because of this fact, the patient who sustain elevated compound fracture carries a better prognosis.[2,3,5,6,9] The basic principles for the management of compound elevated skull fractures are same for any the other compound wound compound depressed skull fractures, that is, early recognition and prompt intervention (broad spectrum.
The group treated conservatively compared favorably with the surgical cases and also with previously reported series. The obvious bias in favor of the conservative group is admitted; however, it is clear that the majority of simple fractures and some compound depressed skull fractures can be managed safely without major surgical intervention.
Compound skull fractures depressed greater than the thickness of the cranium may undergo operative intervention because of the high likelihood of associated dural injury.
Compound depressed fractures may be treated operatively if there is clinical or radiographic evidence of involvement of the posterior wall of the frontal sinus, gross cosmetic. A depressed skull fracture is a medical emergency. The types of circumstances under which a depressed skull fracture may happen are quite specific.
The head must be hit with great force, and usually with a hard object. This is often the subject of “whodunit” mystery novels, where a victim is injured or dies after being hit on the head with. Although compound depressed skull fractures are common and their management and diagnosis have been described at length, their occurrence following dog bites is unusual.
The case of an month-old infant with this injury as a complication of multiple dog bites in the facial and head regions is described with the treatment employed. This case is a compound elevated and depressed skull fracture over the superior sagittal sinus with epidural hematoma and cerebral prolapse.
This is a complicated and very rare variant of skull fractures. The mechanism of this trauma was motor vehicle accident with direct impact on parietal bone.Compound comminuted depressed fracture (FCCD) of the skull is a type of depressed fracture with a laceration in the overlying scalp and galea in continuity with the fracture site and has been.
