Closed globe injuries in children
Aims: Our study aims to investigate the etiology of pediatric closed-globe injuries (CGI) according to gender differences.
Methods: This retrospective study includes patients with closed-globe injuries. Demographic data of the patients, type of injury, location of the injury, object causing injury, initial visual acuity, and anterior and posterior segment findings were recorded. Findings were compared according to gender.
Results: Out of 114 pediatric ocular trauma patients, 28 (24.5%) had open-globe injuries, and 86 (75.6%) had CGI. The most common cause was home in 26 (30.2%). Trauma was caused by striking a thrown object in 22 (25.5%) patients. 68 (79%) of the CGIs were contusions and 18 (21%) were lamellar lacerations. The injury zone was zone 1 in 54 (62.7%) patients, zone 2 in 28 (32.5%) patients, and zone 3 in 4 (4.6%) patients.
Conclusion: CGU can cause severe and permanent vision damage. Injuries that may occur can be prevented by taking the necessary protective measures.
