Introduction: Orthopedic surgery, with a specific focus on traumatology, plays a pivotal role in restoring musculoskeletal function and improving the quality of life for patients who have experienced traumatic injuries.

Objectives: The basic aim of the study is to find the complications and revision surgery in orthopedics focusing on traumatology.

Material and methods: This retrospective cohort study was conducted in DHQ Hospital Timergara Lower Dir KPK during January 2023 to June 2023. .Data collection for this retrospective cohort study, which focused on complications and revision surgery in orthopedics, particularly in the field of traumatology, followed a systematic approach and was completed over a defined period. The primary data source utilized was the electronic health records (EHRs) which provided comprehensive patient records for the study.

Results: In this study of 480 participants undergoing orthopedic traumatology procedures, we observed a diverse range of demographic characteristics and injury profiles. The mean age of participants was 42.5 years, with a slightly higher representation of males (65%). The predominant traumatic injury type was fractures, accounting for 60% of cases, followed by dislocations (25%) and soft tissue injuries (15%). The anatomical distribution revealed a higher prevalence of injuries in the upper extremities (40%), followed by lower extremities (30%), spine (20%), and pelvis/hip (10%). These findings align with the clinical reality of orthopedic traumatology, reflecting the varied nature of musculoskeletal injuries encountered across age groups.

Conclusion: It is concluded that complications and revision surgeries play a crucial role in patient management, with age being a significant factor in postoperative complications. These findings have clinical implications, emphasizing the need for tailored approaches to address complications and optimize patient outcomes in traumatology-focused orthopedics.
