SummaryOver the last 10 years, snowboarding has become established as a popular and legitimate alpine sport. However, at present, there are few epidemiological studies examining the spectrum of injuries associated with this new sport.Snowboarders are typically male (male : female ratio of 3 : 1) and in their early twenties. They have an injury rate of 4 to 6 per 1000 visits, which is comparable to that which occurs with skiing. However, in contrast to skiing, in which only 34% of those injured… 
Spectrum of injuries from snowboarding.
There exists a wide spectrum of injuries from snowboarding, ranging from common extremity injuries to potentially life-threatening nonorthopedic trauma, and the data suggest that aerial maneuvers are associated with increased risk of injury to the head, face, spine, and abdomen and that collisions areassociated with more severe injury.
Injury patterns with snowboarding.
Spinal cord injury and snowboarding--the British Columbia experience.
This study of 10 consecutive cases admitted to the Vancouver Hospital and Health Sciences Centre Acute Spinal Cord Injury Unit, over the 1997 to 1998 winter season, analyzes the epidemiology of snowboarding spinal injury.

Given that injury patterns significantly differ between sports, it is important for clinicians, ski patrollers, and resorts to develop and deliver sport-specific injury prevention interventions to most effectively decrease injury burden.
Snowboarding injuries in children and adolescents.
Spinal injuries in snowboarders: risk of jumping as an integral part of snowboarding.
Spinal injuries sustained while snowboarding are increasing considerably in incidence and are characterized as complex injuries, which must be educated young snowboarders of the risk of this sport to prevent these serious injuries.
Fracture and dislocation of snowboarder's elbow.
Posterior dislocation; fractures of coronoid process, radial neck, and radial head; and extension-type fracture of the distal humerus characterize the particular and frequent injury mechanism responsible for snowboarding trauma in the elbow region.
Characteristics of Upper Extremity Injuries Sustained by Falling During Snowboarding
Two snowboarding stances as well as 2 falling directions had a significant influence on the frequency of the injured side in the upper extremity.
Common Injuries in Mountain Skiing
The role of the radiologist is essential in recognition of the lesion but also in the treatment planning using all imaging methods at his disposal by conventional radiography, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging especially, never forgetting the importance of clinical history and clinical examination.


Australian snowboard injury data base study
Overall, novices had more upper limb fractures and knee injuries; intermediate and ad vanced riders had more ankle injuries; beginners should use "hybrid" or soft-shell boots and take les sons.
Skiing and snowboarding injuries. When schussing is a pain.
Physicians need to use epidemiologic data to advise patients of methods to minimize the risk of injury as they participate in these healthy and vigorous winter sports.
Skiing accidents in the past 15 years.
A statistical analysis of distances skied and of alpine skiing accidents has been performed in the Davos-Klosters skiing area and a Swiss multicentre study on skiing safety shows comparable injury patterns in other skiing areas.
Fracture of the body of the talus.
Fractures in the posterior and lateral tubercles must be interpreted as links in more extensive injuries involving the subtalar joint and possibly the talocrural joint with associated injuries to articular cartilage, joint capsules, and ligaments.
Fractures of the lateral process of the talus.
A retrospective review of nine patients with fractures of the lateral process of the talus indicates that a substantial portion of patients will have persistent symptoms if the fracture is not
