Golf buggy related head injuries

Singapore Med J. 2000 Oct;41(10):504-5.


Our department has recently managed three cases of serious head injuries resulting from falls from golf buggies. One of them sustained moderate head injury with a small cerebral contusion and skull fracture. Two of them sustained severe head injury with extensive cerebral contusions, extradural haematoma requiring craniotomy. Of the three patients, two made good recoveries whereas the third remained vegetative. We feel that instruction on the safe use of golf buggies is inadequate and should be intensified.
