View Full Version : Pediatric skull fracture

01-23-2002, 04:59 AM
Dear List Members:

I have been attempting to find references dealing with the forces and/or
energy necessary to create skull fracture in children (Approximately 18
months). Unfortunately, I have not had much luck.

I have information that referenced a "BEVER" out of Germany who did several
pediatric skull drops, but there was no citation found in performing a
medline search. Medline searches and other attempts for determining these
tolerance values have also been fruitless so far.

If anyone has information or citations regarding forces necessary to create
skull fracture or information regarding the study performed by Bever, I would
be very grateful for your help.

Thanks in advance.
