IBANEZ CASERO, Marlene  and  SUAREZ LESCAY, Celso. Vascular trauma. Statistics of a biennium in Santiago de Cuba province. MEDISAN [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.9, pp.1-7. ISSN 1029-3019.

A descriptive, observational, and cross-sectional study of 71 patients undergoing vascular trauma was carried out in Santiago de Cuba during the biennium 2008-2010 in order to determine the morbidity and mortality due to that cause in the territory, in which case data about clinical and socio-demographical variables was obtained. The predominance of its occurrence in males aged 16-30 years, as well as the predominance of white weapon being the triggering factor and causing the injuries in upper extremities prevailed among the main results; in spite of being common, these cases do not complicate and are rarely fatal.

Keywords : vascular trauma; arteriovenous injury; upper extremity.
