Dr Jairam Jagiasi [2] | Dr Ankit Prasad [2] | Aaron Naisbitt | Dr Amit Joshi [2]

Abstract: Delay in surgical management of trauma and fracture cases is a problem being faced by all major tertiary care institutes in developing countries. Exponential growth of population against static number of health care institutions and health care personnel has led to a mismatch in the number of takers and givers. A myriad of factors lead to delay in the definitive management of fracture patients. This study was conducted to determine the chief reasons for this delay after careful monitoring of date of admission and date of surgery and interviewing the treating surgeon and the patients. Modified Lankaster classification was used to standardize the advised time for surgery and the results were analyzed statistically.
