HELMET-INDUCED NECK DEGLOVING IN A MOTORCYCLIST

The paper reports on a case of a subtotal degloving injury of the neck caused by high energy frontal impact to the face bar of a full face helmet. The examination clearly showed that the impacting force tightened the chin strap to the neck and caused the incised wound that was observed at the autopsy. This report deleniates a further helmet induced injury after crabniofacial impact involving the rigid face bar of a full face helmet.
