ABSTRACT
Objective: Extremity foreign body injuries are common in trauma departments. In this study, we aimed to
find a relation to demographics, treatment methods, injury characteristics, environmental and injury conditions
so that prevention methods could be more effective.
Material and Methods: Hospital digital archives were searched between July 2014 and March 2020 retrospectively
and 146 patients were included. The demographic information, injury place, injured extremity
with side, foreign body type and opacity, presence of infection, type of anesthesia performed, operation
time, incision length were recorded. Data were analyzed statistically.
Results: The mean age of the patients was 25.9 ± 17.99 (2-78). According to gender and side examination,
90 patients were male and 56 patients were female. Metallic object and bullet injuries were mostly seen in
males and needle injuries were mostly seen in females. Injuries caused by metallic objects were significantly
more common in the upper extremity (p: 0.001). Glass and needle injuries were seen significantly as indoor
injuries; as well as bullet, wooden part, and metallic part injuries were seen as outdoor injuries (p<0.001).
The infection rate was significantly higher in outdoor injuries (p: 0.006). Age (p: 0.005), operation time (p:
0.007) and incision length (p: 0.019) were significantly higher in outdoor injuries. Indoor injuries were significantly
higher under 18 years of age (p:0.036). There was a significant correlation between upper extremity
injury and age (r: 0.358, p <0.001) and between upper extremity injury and male gender (r: 0.241, p: 0.003).
Conclusion: Foreign body injuries are common injuries seen in wide age range. Antibiotic prophylaxis and
tetanus vaccine should be applied as primary care. Since firearm injuries, wooden part injuries, and injuries
in the rural environment are found to be associated with infection, further studies are needed to discuss
extending the duration of antibiotic prophylaxis in these cases.
