Abstract: Polytraumas are a leading cause of death and hospitalization especially in the young adults. Most of the times during the initial survey in emergency some major or minor injuries get overlooked leading to a great impact on the patient be it prolonged hospitalization, longer intensive care unit stay and sometimes an unworthy death. Missed injuries have a bad reputation and are sometimes associated with serious morbidity for the patient and personal embarrassment for the surgeon. Patients with missed injuries had higher mean Injury Severity Scores and longer stays in hospital and intensive care unit compared with patients without missed injuries.
