Author's abstract

Rollerblading is increasingly popular in the UK. Over 12 weeks, we treated 29 patients of whom 34 per cent required operative intervention. There was a wide range of injuries, those of the radius being most common, and some (e.g. femoral and pelvic fractures) being quite severe. The value of protective equipment is discussed.
