If you're interested, read Paul Pritchards book (The Totem Pole). For those unfamiliar with the tale, Paul took a fall on the Tote, brained himself and got rescued. He was somewhat messed up bit lived.
One of his surgeons in Hobart predicted that his injuries my have been worse if he was wearing a helmet, due to the very particular nature of the trauma.
I don't remember how much else is said, but said surgeon briefly shares his thoughts on helmets and climbing injuries.
