Le médecin de montagne face aux traumatismes de l'enfant et de l'adolescent en ski alpin‎ : étude sur la saison 2010-2011

Abstract : Alpine skiing is a mass sport whose adult traumatology is well known. However, little data specifically exits for the child and the adolescent. This study is designed to describe the traumatisms of children aged from 1-19 years from the 2010-2011 "Médecins de Montagne" database. The results show a predominance of lesions of the lower member (49.9%), particularly in lower age (76.2%) with leg ankle fractures and knee sprains other than ACL. Adolescence represents the majority of traumatisms (57.8%), which differ in their types: stem head lesions and T.C, fractures of the upper extremity, wrist and thumb sprains. From the age of 15 we find ACL ruptures and shoulder injuries. Females are more inclined to musculo-tendinous injuries and sprains of the LCA. Head injuries (4.1%) are more frequent and mainly due to collisions (34.6%). There is an increased risk of fracture for the beginner (RR 2.18 in the years 1-15). These results are consistent with physiology, the skiing learning curve, psychological specificities of teenagers and material constraints. As regards to prevention, efforts could be made to better tailor the adjustments of shoes and bindings to this population segment. Screening of the articular hyperlaxity in women is another way of improvement as well as applying the wearing of helmets to all age groups.
