REVIEW
Christian Fink, Robert Steensen, Peter Gföller, Robert Lawton
PURPOSE: Critically evaluate the published literature related to quadriceps tendon (QT) medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) reconstruction. RECENT FINDINGS: Hamstring tendon (HT) MPFL reconstruction techniques have been shown to successfully restore patella stability, but complications including patella fracture are reported. Quadriceps tendon (QT) reconstruction techniques with an intact graft pedicle on the patella side have the advantage that patella bone tunnel drilling and fixation are no longer needed, reducing risk of patella fracture...

INTRODUCTION: Over the last 20 years, the incidence of pediatric diaphyseal femoral fractures was increased, due to changes in the children's daily activities. The healing times are different according to the chosen treatment and to other factors such as age, type of fracture, involvement of the soft tissues, and concomitance with other injuries. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From 2000 to 2015, 38 pediatric patients with diaphyseal femoral fractures were surgically treated and enrolled in the study...

BACKGROUND: Hand ischemia following trauma in children is rare and the natural history after upper extremity arterial bypass in children is unknown. We hypothesize children with brachial artery repair are at long term risk of developing aneurysmal degeneration or Thrombosis thus necessitating annual duplex ultrasonography and physical examination. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective review of children who had brachial artery repair (bypass or vein patch) for hand ischemia secondary to trauma at a level I trauma pediatric hospital was performed...

Background: The hypothesis of this study is that the diagnosis of infant abuse is associated with criteria for shaken baby syndrome (SBS)/abusive head trauma (AHT), and that that changes in incidence of abuse diagnosis in infants may be due to increased awareness of SBS/AHT criteria. Methods: This was a population-based register study. Setting: Register study using the Swedish Patient Register, Medical Birth Register, and Cause of Death Register. The diagnosis of infant abuse was based on the International Classification of Diseases, 9th and 10th revision...

OBJECTIVE: There is a scarcity of data from randomised controlled trials on the association of growth hormone (GH) with gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists in idiopathic short stature (ISS), although this off-label use is common. We aimed to test whether delaying pubertal progression could increase near-adult height (NAH) in GH-treated patients with ISS. METHODS: Patients with ISS at puberty onset were randomised to GH with leuprorelin (combination, n=46) or GH alone (n=45)...

BACKGROUND & PURPOSE: Distal tibial Triplane fracture with ipsilateral tibial shaft fracture is a rare but important problem. This rarely reported combination of injuries if not recognised may lead to deleterious consequences. METHODS/PATIENTS: The local database of all emergency admissions was scrutinised to identify subjects before interrogation of the clinical notes and relevant radiographic imaging. FINDINGS: This paper reports a series of five children who were found to have triplane fracture of the distal tibia with concomitant ipsilateral fracture of the tibial shaft...

BACKGROUND: Despite an 88% increase in the number of pediatric fractures treated in ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) over a 10-year period, few studies have compared outcomes of fracture treatment performed in a freestanding ASC compared with those performed in the hospital (HOSP) or hospital outpatient department (HOPD). The purpose of this study was to compare clinical and radiographic outcomes, treatment times, and costs for treatment of Gartland type II supracondylar humeral (SCH) fracture in the ASC, HOSP, and HOPD...

BACKGROUND: Axis (C2) screw fixation has been shown to be effective in treating disorders that necessitate cervical stabilization. Although translaminar C2 screws have demonstrated clinical efficacy in adults, this technique has not yet been thoroughly investigated in children. This study describes the indications, technique, and results of translaminar C2 screw fixation in a case series of pediatric cervical spine disorders. METHODS: We searched the orthopaedic database at our institution for patients who had undergone a cervical spinal fusion that encompassed C2 between 2007 and 2017...

Fibular fractures in the setting of an unstable ankle joint require surgical fixation; however, several factors contradict open surgical correction. Severe soft tissue compromise can delay adequate fracture reduction and preclude the standard incisional approach. The soft tissue envelope in the setting of obesity, diabetes, and/or peripheral vascular disease further complicates definitive treatment. Poorly timed open fixation can lead to delayed healing of the incision site, with wound breakdown and the potential for hardware failure...

BACKGROUND: Currently, there is a relative paucity of data investigating the operative management of displaced pediatric zygomaticomaxillary complex (ZMC) fractures. The purpose of this study was to assess ZMC fracture management and associated complications in the pediatric population, and potentially describe a standard treatment paradigm for pediatric ZMC fractures. METHODS: A retrospective cohort review was performed of all patients younger than 15 years-of-age presenting to a single institution with ZMC fractures from 1990-2010...

Background: We noticed that most of active sports children with low back pain (LBP) have muscle tightness around the pelvis and reduced trunk flexibility. Abnormalities in short-time inversion recovery (STIR) images on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can show stress fracture. Therefore, we investigated the associations among LBP, trunk flexibility, and lumbar stress fractures. Methods: A total of 130 patients under the age of 18 years complained of LBP were investigated in STIR MRI images...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to investigate whether pathological fractures (PF) influence the prognosis of patients with osteosarcoma (OS) or Ewing tumor (ET) regarding 5-year survival, occurrence of metastases, and local recurrence. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 205 patients with metastatic and nonmetastatic OS or ET. Survival analysis was performed for all patients and differentiated for patients with OS (n = 127) and ET (n = 78) as well as for adults (n = 101) and children (n = 104)...

BACKGROUND: Non-operative treatment with immobilization is the gold-standard for paediatric clavicular fractures. Purpose of this study is to evaluate functional outcomes and efficacy of non-operative treatment of clavicular fractures in a succession of 131 children. METHODS: Between 2006 and 2012, we treated non-surgically 131 children for a clavicular fracture. All fractures have been classified according to Robinson classification. Clavicle shortening, range of movements and muscular strength through the Medical Research Council (MRC) scale were evaluated...

PURPOSE: This study examined a single center's experience with regards to etiology and distribution of fractures treated from July 2015 to August 2016 in Shanghai, China. METHODS: The medical records of 621 patients with craniomaxillofacial fractures were reviewed. Patient notes and radiographic images were analyzed for detailed injury data. Age, gender, etiology, and site of fracture were examined. Chi-square test was used to analyze the causes of single and multiple fractures...

PURPOSE: The aim of the study was to investigate the relationship between attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, and depression with pediatric extremity fractures. METHODS: Between November 2014 and November 2016, consecutive 138 patients with pediatric extremity fractures were prospectively investigated in terms of the tendency to anxiety, depression, or ADHD in the study group. Consecutive 168 non-trauma patients who were admitted to general pediatrics outpatient clinic were included the control group...

REVIEW
Rachel C Barratt, Jason Bernard, Anthony R Mundy, Tamsin J Greenwell
Pelvic fracture urethral injury (PFUI) management in male adults and children is controversial. The jury is still out on the best way to manage these injuries in the short and long-term to minimise complications and optimise outcomes. There is also little in the urological literature about pelvic fractures themselves, their causes, grading systems, associated injuries and the mechanism of PFUI. A review of pelvic fracture and male PFUI literature since 1757 was performed to determine pelvic fracture classification, associated injuries and, PFUI classification and management...
