Specific Complex Injuries: Compound Elevated Skull Fracture

Compound Elevated Skull Fracture (Traumatic Head Injury)

A compound elevated skull fracture is a condition where the skull is elevated above the intact outer table of the skull. This type of fracture is relatively uncommon. If it is not treated promptly, complications such as intracranial sepsis or CSF fistula can occur. It is always compound in nature and can be caused by a variety of situations. This injury can be caused by, for example, an assault in which the initial blow penetrates the skull and when the weapon is withdrawn it lifts the fractured portion of the skull with it.
