A Head Count Most Morbid

Bali News: A Head Count Most Morbid

(10/7/2012)

The Bali Post reports that around 450 people die each year at Bali’s Sanglah General Hospital from head injuries sustained in traffic accident on the island’s roads.

The head of the surgical-neurology unit at Sanglah Hospital, Dr. Sri Maliawan, confirmed the number of 450 annual fatalities due to serious head trauma.

He said that technological advances open the way for the number of fatalities due to serious head injury to be reduced. But, despite these improvements, the number of fatalities continues to climb. Improvements in regional hospitals means that head trauma cases once sent to Sanglah are now often sent to other hospitals meaning the total number of deaths may well be far above 400.

Dr. Maliawan said that in a single year over 2,000 patients with head injuries are treated at Bali’s Sanglah Hospital with about 300 of that total undergoing surgery. A portion of these treated die from their injuries while a number of others are left paralysed. “Many of these people,” Dr. Muliawan explained, “ are of a productive age making it very unfortunate if they are paralysed. “

Explaining that while the advances in neurosurgery now allow patients to be treated without surgery and with little discomfort, he bemoaned the fact that many people still take to the road without the needed safety equipment, such as helmets.
