Studies on the association of head injuries with cervical spine injuries from India are scant. We studied 391 fatal head injuries and 81 of them had an associated injury in the cervical spine. 57 of 81 were brought alive and were treated using ATLS protocol. Only three of 57 could have any had surgical intervention and only 25 survived the first 24 hours. Unlike studies from the western countries, which had more upper cervical spine involvement in fatal head injury victims, this study had a majority 65% of injuries in mid and lower cervical spinal regions. The study is unique in analyzing the incidence of cervical spinal injuries in a larger group of head injuries, while other studies analyzed the incidence of head injuries in a larger group of cervical spinal injuries.
