Data on maxillofacial trauma with concomitant trauma were 46.5%. Concomitant injury in 2015 was 36.06% and in 2016 as many as 55.88% where there was an increase in cases of concomitant trauma. In 2015 there were 63.63% of the accompanying brain injuries, while in 2016 there were 42.1% brain injuries, where the trauma outside the brain injury also increased.
