Soft tissue injuries of the face: a 10 year review.


A review of 1,173 soft tissue injuries seen and managed at the University College Hospital, Ibadan over a 10 year period was made. The age range was from 4 months to 85 years with a dominant age group range of 21-30 years. The commonest type of soft tissue injury was laceration while the commonest aetiology was road traffic accidents followed by falls. Males were generally more involved than females and the commonest complication was wound dehiscence.
