A clinico-demographic analysis of maxillofacial trauma in the elderly
Al–Qamachi LH et al. – Management of maxillofacial injuries in this population should focus on targeted prevention programmes, which address known risk factors for falling. The authors believe that this is a public health issue. Members of the maxillofacial team should be aware of common risk factors of falls in elderly. Better collaboration with the Medicine for Elderly team should be considered at an early stage on managing these patients.
