Abstract

Background: Considering special physical, psychological and social importance of traumatic injuries to female genital tract, this study was carried out to determine the causes and characteristics of injuries of this system. Materials and Methods: This descriptive study was conducted on 21 patients operated upon for non-obstetrical injuries between March 2005 and March 2008 in Shabihkhani University Hospital, Kashan, Iran. The patients' data including age, mechanism, location, and kind of injury, and type of operation was extracted, recorded and analyzed. Results: Of 12825 surgeries, 21 cases (0.16) had traumatic complications. M ean age of the patient population was 19.2 ± 12.8, and most of the cases were seen in the age group 19 to 35 years. In 33.3 of cases more than one part were damaged. Labia major, labia minor, fourchette and clitoris had been injured equally, each in 14.3. Fall and intercourse were the most frequent causes of trauma (28.6). Conclusion: Although it seems that the incidence of genital trauma in women is low, these kinds of injuries may result in many physical and psychological problems particularly in young girls while they are often preventable.
