Abstract [en]

Background and Purpose: Despite a decreasing tendency of head and facial injuries in ice hockey the number of these injuries still seems to be too high. The purpose of this prospective investigation was to study the mechanism of facial and eye injuries as well as the role of protective equipment and revised rules. Methods: A prospective epidemiologic analysis of ice hockey-related injuries in the two highest-ranking Swiss Ice Hockey Leagues-League A (NLA) and B (NLB)-was performed by the Swiss Medical Committee during the two seasons 1996 and 1997. Results: A total of 392 injuries occurred during games or practice. Head injuries and facial injuries made up 26% of these injuries. Most of these injuries were classified as minor injuries. All eye injuries occurred in players either not wearing visors at all or wearing the visor incorrectly. Most injuries were caused by the illegal use of sticks. Conclusion: Most head injuries and facial injuries could be prevented by wearing helmet and visor correctly and by playing the game according to the rules
