PURPOSE: The prevalence of neonatal brachial plexus palsy (NBPP) has been increasing since the early 1980s. No known studies have examined long-term psychological health and quality of life (QOL) in young adults. The purpose of this study was to investigate the psychosocial and intellectual aspects of NBPP during adolescence into young adulthood. METHODS: A total of 31 patients were enrolled in the adolescent group (16 to 18 y) and 25 in the young adult group (23 to 28 y)...

BACKGROUND: Obstetrical brachial plexus palsy can lead to fixed forearm supination contracture. Fixed supination may lead to functional deficits as the affected hand cannot be positioned optimally for activities on a desk such as writing and typing, or for using tools including utensils, which require a neutral or pronated forearm. Forearm pronation osteotomy has been used to address this problem, although the functional benefit over nonoperative management has not been clearly defined...

INTRODUCTION: Achondroplasia is the most common skeletal dysplasia with a rate of nearly 1/10,000. The development of lower extremity deformity is well documented, and various modes of correction have been reported. There are no reports on the use of growth modulation to correct angular deformity in achondroplasia. METHODS: Medical Records from 1985 to 2015 were reviewed for the diagnosis of achondroplasia and growth modulation procedures. Patients who had been treated for angular deformity of the legs by growth modulation were identified...

BACKGROUND: Flexible elastic nails, submuscular plating, and rigid locked intramedullary nails are common methods of fixation for pediatric femur fractures (PFF) in which the fracture table is used to aid reduction. Little is known about complications associated with fracture table application in PFF. The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence and risk factors associated with adverse outcomes related to fracture table application for the treatment of PFF. METHODS: A retrospective chart review of all children (younger than 18 y) treated for a femur fracture with the use of the fracture table between 2004 and 2015 at a single tertiary pediatric hospital was performed...

BACKGROUND: Internet searches and social media utilization in health care has exploded over the past 5 years, and patients utilize it to gain information on their health conditions and physicians. Social media has the potential to serve as a means for education, communication, and marketing in all health care specialties. Physicians are sometimes reluctant to engage because of concerns of privacy, litigation, and lack of experience with this modality. Many surgical subspecialties have capitalized on social media but no study to date has examined the specific footprint of pediatric orthopaedic surgeons in this realm...

BACKGROUND: Postoperative pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a neutrophilic dermatosis and pathergic reaction at surgical sites. Reports of children with postoperative PG are rare in the literature. METHODS: We report the case of a 13-year-old boy without any known preexisting illnesses, who developed severe systemic response and wound deterioration after elective hip reconstruction surgery. The working diagnosis of necrotizing fasciitis was later determined to be postoperative PG...

BACKGROUND: Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a genetic disorder commonly associated with osteopenia, osteoporosis, bone fractures, bone deformities, and other clinical features. A frequent radiologic finding with OI is acetabular protrusio (AP). We hypothesized that AP develops in patients with OI over time. In addition, we hypothesized that AP also develops in patients with OI without radiographic evidence of AP on initial examination. METHODS: Medical records and radiographs of 55 patients (109 hips) diagnosed with OI evaluated at our institution were retrospectively reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Though computed tomography (CT) and 3 dimensional (3D) reconstruction of the spine and ribcage are powerful techniques for detailed monitoring of spinal growth and surgical planning of patients, drawbacks can arise. We explored the application of low-dose stereoradiography of the spine to calculate distinct morphologic parameters of the vertebral body in a juvenile patient population with early-onset scoliosis or congenital scoliosis. This study compares the 3D vertebral morphology measurements using low-dose stereoradiography with the currently accepted imaging modality for such measurements, CT scans...

BACKGROUND: Pin fixation of Salter-II proximal humeral fractures in adolescents approaching skeletal maturity has potential complications that can be avoided with single-screw fixation. However, the strength of screw fixation relative to parallel and diverging pin fixation is unknown. To compare the biomechanical fixation strength between these fixation modalities, we used synthetic composite humeri, and then compared these results in composite bone with cadaveric humeri specimens. METHODS: Parallel pinning, divergent pinning, and single-screw fixation repairs were performed on synthetic composite humeri with simulated fractures...

BACKGROUND: Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is one of the most common congenital defects in the newborn. When its severe form is not corrected, it is associated with long-term morbidity. Closed reduction with casting is the standard primary treatment and reduction is confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). We reported our experience on the reliability of MRI in postreduction assessment of DDH. METHODS: All children who underwent closed reduction for Graf type IV DDH at our institution between September 2010 and June 2016 were retrospectively reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Evaluation of distal extensor mechanism alignment continues to evolve in children with patella instability. Prior studies support the use of the tibial tubercle to trochlear groove (TT-TG) distance but limitations exist for this measurement including: changes in the TT-TG distance with knee flexion, difficulty with finding the deepest part of a dysplastic trochlea, and limitations regarding identification of the site of the anatomic abnormality. The tibial tubercle-posterior cruciate ligament (TT-PCL) distance has been introduced as an alternative measure to address the shortcomings in the TT-TG distance by quantifying the position of the TT independent of the trochlea and with respect to the tibia only...

BACKGROUND: Surgical-site infections are one of the most concerning complications in patients treated with growing rods (GR). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the use of preoperative screening for Staphylococcus aureus (SA) for all growing spine procedures, and if this would permit alteration of prophylactic antibiotics to cover the identified resistances. METHODS: All patients were identified who had SA screening during the course of GR treatment. In otal, 34 patients [23 neuromuscular (NMS), 4 congenital, 4 idiopathic scoliosis (IS), and 3 syndromic] were identified who had 111 preoperative screenings [79 lengthenings, 23 insertions, 6 revisions, and 3 conversions to posterior spinal fusions (PSF)]...

BACKGROUND: Current assessment of spine growth for patients undergoing growth friendly surgical treatment for early-onset scoliosis (EOS) is the use of serial, 1-dimensional standard-of-care coronal vertical spine height (SoCVH) measurements. Any growth of the spine out of the coronal plane is missed by the SoCVH, which may underestimate the actual growth of the spine. This study set to validate the novel 3-dimensional true spine length (3DTSL) radiographic measurement technique for measuring growth of EOS patients...

BACKGROUND: Cervical spine deformity in rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata (RCDP) has been described with different findings reported in the literature. However, available literature provides limited data from a few cases with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the cervical spine. Our report describes the MRI findings in a group of children with RCDP, aiming to reach a better understanding of this pathology. METHODS: An Institutional Review Board-approved RCDP Registry was created at our institution with the goal of identifying pertinent medical issues over the lifespan of individuals with RCDP...

BACKGROUND: Fibular hemimelia is the most common deficiency involving the long bones. Paley classification is based on the ankle joint morphology, identifies the basic pathology, and helps in planning the surgical management. Reconstruction surgery encompasses foot deformity correction and limb length equalization. The SUPERankle procedure is a combination of bone and soft tissue procedures that stabilizes the foot and addresses all deformities. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 29 consecutive patients (29 limb segments), surgically treated between December 2000 and December 2014...
