Displaced tibial eminence fractures are commonly encountered in pediatric patients and are often considered to be functionally equivalent to an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture. While a variety of techniques are available for fixation of this injury, we describe an anchorless technique relying on suture fixation tied over a bone bridge. This technique also relies on two intra-articular Hewson suture passers to quickly and effectively pass and shuttle sutures through the ACL and tibial bone tunnels in order to reduce and fix the fracture fragment...

Dural venous sinus thrombosis (DVST) is an uncommon finding after traumatic brain injury. The diagnosis can often be initially missed, particularly if not associated with an overlying fracture. Pediatric DVST following closed head injury and without an overlying fracture is very rare, with only 20 cases reported in the literature to date. Here we present the case of a 19-month-old boy who presented with a history of trivial fall and an episode of fever. On presentation, the pediatric Glasgow Coma Scale (pGCS) score was E3V4M6, and initial brain computed tomography (CT) was normal...

INTRODUCTION: Although pelvic fractures in children are rare, because of anatomical differences between an adult's skeleton and a child's skeleton, these lesions in the pediatric population have specific characteristics that need to be borne in mind when dealing with them. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed on the pelvic fractures in skeletally immature patients treated in our hospital in the last 20 years. RESULTS: Eighty-one pelvic fractures in children were treated between 1993 and 2013...

Pelvic fracture with urethral injury in girls is an uncommon entity that is usually associated with concomitant vaginal lacerations. Management options vary from immediate exploration and urethral anastomosis to delayed urethroplasty. We report our experience of managing a 10-year old girl presenting 6 months after a pelvic fracture with urethrovaginal injury and a completely obliterated urethral meatus managed successfully with a single-stage bladder tube repair.

Perthes's disease corresponds to an interruption of the vascularization of the epiphyseal nucleus of the femoral head followed by avascular necrosis. This necrosis weakens the bone and subchondral fractures associated with a deformation of the femoral head is seen. It is important not to miss an extrusion of the femoral head, which makes surgical treatment unavoidable. The loss of joint congruence causes functional limitations and represents an increased risk for early hip osteoarthritis. Non weight bearing limits the subchondral fractures, but requires an important adaptation from the patient and his entourage...

BACKGROUND: Musculoskeletal injuries are among the most common reasons for emergency department (ED) visits in the pediatric population. Many such injuries can be managed with a single follow-up outpatient visit. However, untimely (ie, premature) referrals by emergency physicians to orthopaedic surgeons are common and may inadvertently create need for a second visit, generating unnecessary expenditures. We sought to elucidate the cost of premature musculoskeletal follow-up visits to the patients, families, and the health care system...

BACKGROUND: American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) Clinical Practice Guidelines for pediatric femoral shaft fractures indicate titanium elastic nails (TENs) for children 5 to 11 years old. Growing evidence suggests these fractures may also be treated with open or submuscular plating. The purpose of this study was to compare estimated blood loss (EBL), operative time, fluoroscopy time, cost, and subjective and objective pain scores between TENs and plating techniques used in 5- to 11-year-old children with midshaft femur fractures based on length stability...

Bisphosphonates are considered the most effective drugs for controlling adult and pediatric osteolytic diseases. Although they have been used successfully for many years, several side effects, such as osteonecrosis of the jaw, delayed dental eruption, atypical femoral fracture and alterations to the bone growth system, have been described. After an overview of nitrogenous bisphosphonate, the purpose of this article is to describe their mechanisms of action and current applications, review the preclinical and clinical evidence of their side effects in the skeleton ("what we know"), and describe current recommendations for preventing and managing these effects ("what we can do")...

BACKGROUND: As childhood obesity remains an ongoing issue for the United States there has been an increasing number of studies detailing its effect on fracture complexity, management, and outcomes. This study utilizes a national database to examine whether obese children with supracondylar humerus fractures are more likely to require open reduction and internal fixation than nonobese children. METHODS: The Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project Kid's Inpatient Database of 2003, 2006, 2009, 2012 were queried for pediatric supracondylar humerus fractures [International Classification of Disease (ICD-9), 812...

Siwei Zhou, Katherine Duncan, S Tonya Stefko
Silent sinus syndrome was first described as spontaneous enophthalmos and hypoglobus associated with subclinical maxillary sinusitis without prior trauma or surgery. This clinical entity has later been described after trauma in which damage to the ostiomeatal complex leads to atelectasis of the maxillary sinus. We report a case of a 14-year-old boy who presented 4 years after sustaining a non-operative orbital floor fracture with enophthalmos and transient diplopia. Computed tomography (CT) demonstrated enlargement in size of the original orbital floor fracture and bilateral maxillary sinus disease...

Purpose: Quadriplegic children with cerebral palsy are more susceptible to osteoporosis because of various risk factors that interfere with bone metabolism. Pamidronate is effective for pediatric osteoporosis, but there are no guidelines for optimal dosage or duration of treatment in quadriplegic children with osteoporosis. We aimed to evaluate the efficacy of low-dose pamidronate treatment in these patients. Methods: Ten quadriplegic patients on antiepileptic drugs (6 male, 4 female patients; mean age, 10...

Accessory spleen rupture may occur after blunt abdominal trauma or, more rarely, spontaneously. Although only few cases are described in adults, it is even more uncommon in children. We report the case of a 13-year-old boy with traumatic accessory spleen fracture. After a review of the literature, we discuss the diagnostic points that should raise the suspicion for accessory spleen fracture as well as how challenging the diagnosis by computed tomography can be.
