Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is one of the most important psychological outcomes of RTAs, and it can result in long-lasting negative impacts and consequences. The aim of this study was to estimate the prevalence of PTSD after Road Traffic Accident at King AbdulAziz Medical City, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Methods: This cross sectional included the records of patients who experienced RTAs and were admitted to King AbdulAziz Medical City in Riyadh during the period from January 2013 to January 2016. Data were analyzed using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences program version 23.
