Study Design: Retrospective study of case series. Between 2006 and 2009, clinical records of 293,090 patients were reviewed.

Results: A total of 7,617 patients with 8,944 injuries were found. Boy to girl ratio was 1,7:1. Preschool age children were most frequently affected. Main cause of injury were falls, soft tissue injuries the most common type of injury. Associated injuries occurred in 11% of cases.
