The use of extended criteria donors who might have previously been deemed unsuitable is an option to increase the organ supply for transplantation. This report presents a pediatric case of a successful liver transplantation from a donor with β-thalassemia intermedia. A patient, 6-year-old female, with a diagnosis of cryptogenic liver cirrhosis underwent deceased donor liver transplantation from a thalassemic donor. Extreme hyperferritinemia was detected shortly after transplantation. The most probable cause of hyperferritinemia was iron overload secondary to transplantation of a hemosiderotic liver...

Cervical spine injury in the pediatric athlete is an uncommon but potentially devastating condition that can require a heightened index of suspicion to correctly diagnose. Although some cervical spine injuries present overtly with paraplegia due to cord transection, others can present more subtly with symptoms suggestive of bilateral peripheral neuropathy. Patients with traumatic brachial neuropraxia or "stinger" physiology can present similarly, but symptoms are exclusively unilateral. We present 4 patients with bilateral upper extremity hyperesthesias and absence of tenderness over the cervical vertebral landmarks who were subsequently diagnosed with cervical spine injuries...

BACKGROUND: Fractures are common in the pediatric population. The initial evaluation is rarely by an orthopaedic surgeon, but commonly an emergency room or urgent care center physician/extender. This typically involves splint application by a nonorthopaedist to immobilize the extremity and provide stabilization. Iatrogenic injuries from inappropriate splint placement are a potential public health and legal concern that can lead to complications. The primary purpose of this study was to prospectively evaluate the adequacy of all splints placed on patients who presented to a pediatric orthopaedic office; secondary outcomes included assessing prevalence and types of complications that were associated with inadequate splints...

Background There have been significant advancements in lower extremity reconstruction over the last several decades, and the plastic surgeon's armamentarium has grown to include free muscle and fasciocutaneous flaps along with local perforator and propeller flaps. While we have found a use for a variety of techniques for lower extremity reconstruction, the free gracilis has been our workhorse flap due to the ease of harvest, reliability, and low donor site morbidity. Methods This is a retrospective review of a single surgeon's series of free gracilis flaps utilized for lower extremity reconstruction...

BACKGROUND: We introduced the National Aeronautics and Space Association threat-and-error model to our surgical unit. All admissions are considered flights, which should pass through stepwise deescalations in risk during surgical recovery. We hypothesized that errors significantly influence risk deescalation and contribute to poor outcomes. METHODS: Patient flights (524) were tracked in real time for threats, errors, and unintended states by full-time performance personnel...

Treatment-related neurotoxicity is a potentially life-threatening clinical condition that can represent a diagnostic challenge. Differentiating diagnoses between therapy-associated brain injury and recurrent disease can be difficult, and the immediate recognition of neurotoxicity is crucial to providing correct therapeutic management, ensuring damage reversibility. For these purposes, the knowledge of clinical timing and specific treatment protocols is extremely important for interpreting MRI patterns. Neuroradiologic findings are heterogeneous and sometimes overlapping, representing the compounding effect of the different treatments...

BACKGROUND: Forearm compartment syndrome in the pediatric population can lead to severe functional disability. Although it is known that earlier presentation with decompression leads to better outcomes, it is not known when presentation post-injury leads to significant loss of function requiring microsurgical intervention. AIM: To describe the rate of microsurgical reconstruction after forearm compartment syndrome in pediatric patients as related to timing of presentation...

Natal teeth are teeth present in the oral cavity at the time of birth. It is extremely rare to find natal teeth in association with pathological conditions of the oral cavity. Pyogenic granuloma is a type of inflammatory hyperplasia that appears as an over exuberant connective tissue response to a stimulus or injury, in the present case the injurious agent is the natal tooth. The parents of the eight day old male infant brought the child with a natal tooth associated with a soft tissue lesion growing from the gum pad...

BACKGROUND: Delayed diagnosis of flexor tendon injury in children is common, and consequent flexor sheath scarring may necessitate a 2-stage reconstruction. Previous studies show variable outcomes after 2-stage flexor reconstruction in children, especially those below 6 years old. We evaluated functional and subjective outcomes of primary repair and staged reconstruction of zone I and II tendon injuries in children under 6 years of age. METHODS: A retrospective chart review identified 12 digits in 10 patients who had undergone surgical treatment of a zone I or II flexor tendon injury...
