Hello, guys. My father in law was in a car accident several days ago. He is in a hospital and he was diagnosed a depressed skull fracture. I would like to know something more about this. It would be great if someone could fill me in with little more details. Thanks.

Hello. Depressed skull fractures occur when a direct blow acts on a small surface of a skull. This blow is high-energy. It is usually a blunt object such as baseball bat. Fragments are comminuted from the point of impact and pieces of tissue are spread centrifugally. These fractures usually occur in frontoparietal region. The bone here is thin and this area is convenient for an assailant. These fractures can be opened or closed. I hope your father in law will recover. Bye!
