“Introduction Falls are the second most common cause of injury-associated mortality worldwide and an important type

of blunt trauma which form a significant percentage of traumatic accidents and emergency department admissions [1, 2]. Injuries due to falls are largely affected by the height of fall since the velocity and mass of the object determine the kinetic energy which the object gains during fall and is in turn converted to action-reaction forces at the time of impact so as the height increases injury of trauma due to falls

becomes more severe although much lesser degree of fall injuries may lead to serious Selleckchem CRT0066101 morbidity and mortality [3]. In rural areas where the agriculture is at the forefront, falls from trees constitute a different form of falls from height and as some trees possess unique biological features the severity of injury gains intensity like Selleck H 89 walnut trees [4, 5]. Despite the fact that Turkey is one of the countries considered the homeland of walnut, there is only one study from our country about traumas associated with falls from walnut tree [6] and curiously enough, there were only a few studies in the literature worldwide about this topic (Table 1).
