Enfants victimes de l'insécurité routière : épidémiologie des traumatismes et séquelles

Abstract : The objective of this work was to improve knowledge on epidemiology of road traffic injury in children. Analyses from the Rhône Registry, a high quality data base were performed. Incidences and mortality rates of road traffic injuries were calculated. A precise description of injury types and patterns according to type of road user was done. The second objective was to identify risk factors of severe injury or disability. These road injury relating disabilities were assessed by a multicenter prospective study involving twelve French cities. We included 139 children severely injured in a road accident and admitted to a paediatric intensive care unit. Functional, cognitive and behavioural impairments, degrees of disabilities and their impact on the family and on school performance were assessed six months and one year after the road accident. The identification of risk factors of poor outcome allows us to target children who should benefit from a specific and integrated rehabilitation program. Recommendations on injury prevention targets were provided, in particularly relative to safety systems in cars, as well as for two-wheels users. Other recommendations on the acute care medical management and on the follow-up organisation were suggested.
