Gender Ethnicracial And Life Span Considerations

Trauma is the leading cause of death during the first 4 decades of life. In general, more men than women are injured in violent events. Traumatic dislocations occur most frequently in persons under 20 years of age as a result of their involvement in sports or risk-taking activities. The recurrence of a dislocation is very high in people who experience the first injury when they are under the age of 20. If the first injury occurs when the person is 30 or 40 years of age, the potential for a repeat dislocation decreases. Displacements as a result of chronic conditions are more prevalent with people of advanced age. DDH, as compared with unintentional injuries, is usually diagnosed in the newborn period or early childhood years. There are no known ethnic or racial considerations with dislocations.
