Mind the Difference: Characterizing the Impact of Behavioral Health Disorders on Facial Trauma

CONCLUSIONS: Patients with BHD represent a subset of facial trauma characterized by different mechanisms and patterns of injury and premorbid health status. BHDs are associated with higher in-hospital complication rates and resource utilization. Understanding the relationship between craniofacial trauma and premorbid BHD creates opportunities to improve morbidity and resource utilization in this group.
