Objective: To summarize the clinical data of 15 patients with fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP), follow up and analyze the characteristics of the joint involvement in FOP. Method: From May 2005 to December 2016, fifteen FOP cases had been diagnosed in the Children's Hospital Capital Institute of Pediatrics. All medical records and follow-up data were collected and a retrospective analysis was made on the joint involvement in FOP. Pearson correlation analysis was used for data, P<0.05 for the difference was statistically significant...

BACKGROUND: The clinical presentation, phenotypic characterization and natural history of fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP) are diverse and the natural history of the disease is, to a certain extent, different from one patient to another. METHODS: In a series of 11 patients (eight girls and three boys, aged 0 - 16 years), variable clinical presentations were the landmarks of these patients. At birth, all of our patients manifested short great toes in a valgus position...

Hallux valgus in children is a relatively uncommon deformity, also known by several other names such as juvenile or adolescent bunion, metatarsus primus varus, and metatarsus primus adductus. The presence of an open growth plate is considered by most to be part of the definition of this condition. However, others include patients up to age 20 years, owing to the plastic nature of the various components of the condition. The presenting complaint is invariably of the bunion and its cosmetic appearance. Treatment should be conservative and surgery avoided till skeletal maturity is achieved due to the high incidence of recurrence in children...

Subtalar arthroereisis has been used for the treatment of symptomatic flexible flatfoot deformities in both pediatric and adult patients. Chronic sinus tarsi pain is the most common complication of this procedure and can be relieved by removal of the implant. We describe a case of spontaneous fusion of the subtalar joint after arthroereisis. This is an irreversible complication that should be described to the patient as a rare, but possible, outcome of arthroereisis of the subtalar joint.

BACKGROUND: Few studies have described the presentation, bacteriology, risk factors, and complications of Kirschner wire infections in pediatrics. The purpose of this study is to describe these factors to better understand, prevent, and treat infectious complications of smooth wires. METHODS: A retrospective review was performed to identify all patients (birth to 16 y) who were hospitalized for Kirschner wire infection from 1995 to 2012. Presentation, hospital course, bacteriology, outcomes, and complications were recorded...

Planovalgus deformity is prevalent in cerebral palsy patients, but very few studies have quantitatively reported differences between planovalgus and normal foot function. Intersegmental foot kinetics have not been reported in this population. In this study, a three segment (hindfoot, forefoot, hallux) kinematic and kinetic model was applied to typically developing (n=10 subjects, 20 feet) and planovalgus (n=10 subjects, 18 feet) pediatric subjects by two clinicians for each subject. Intra-clinician and inter-clinician repeatability of kinematic variables have been previously reported...

Hallux valgus deformities in children and adolescents are attributed to various malformations. Meticulous assessment of clinical and radiological findings as well as age-dependent progress of hallux malalignment has to be taken into consideration to work out an individual therapeutic concept. Conservative treatment includes both night splints and exercises. Surgical therapy has to be strictly based on objective criteria, i.e. the size of the first intermetatarsal angle and correction of the distal metatarsal articular angle...

PURPOSE: The objective of this report is to describe three cases (four feet) of hallux valgus interphalangeus deformity in the pediatric population. METHODS: A retrospective review was completed to identify three patients (four feet) with a deformity consistent with hallux valgus interphalangeus. Patients were followed at regular intervals for a minimum of 6 months. Treatment modalities and clinical results were reviewed for all patients for this relatively rare entity in the skeletally immature population...

Pediatric clinical management is highly specialized. Problems are complex and often complicated by other medical issues that dictate limitations on therapeutic options. Appropriate diagnosis and successful clinical management depend on the experience and skill of the surgeon. This roundtable discussion focuses on seven difficult cases and presents the views of three experienced and skilled experts in the field.

Foot problems in children can be the result of infection, trauma or overuse. Ingrown toenails, bunions, sesamoid disease, congenital overriding of the fifth toe, and fractures may occur in both adults and children. Some disorders, such as Freiberg's infarction and Kohler's disease, however, are unique to the pediatric population. The potential for adverse sequelae is greater in children than in adults. A thorough understanding of the anatomy of the pediatric foot and a systematic examination will facilitate the diagnosis of pediatric foot problems...

The pediatrician, being a primary health care physician, has the task of bringing the small patient and his parents to the resolution of all those problems which are erroneously referred to a subspecialist. With this in mind, the authors believe that even common orthopedic problems must be evaluated by the pediatrician. He would decide if and when to refer the child to an orthopedic specialist. Certain problems such as congenital hip dysplasia or scoliosis require specific treatment, whereas others (tibial bowing, genu varum-valgum, flatfoot, metatarsus varus) resolve themselves over time...

Four procedures are presented to correct hallux abducto valgus and metatarsus primus adductus in the child between the ages of 3 and 7 years. A new procedure is introduced: a subtalar extra-articular lateral arthroereisis, and an erasure procedure of the epiphysis is discussed. An important new concept in pediatric podiatry is introduced: it is often possible to prevent major surgery in the adult by performing a minor procedure in the young child. Finally, a Reverdin's procedure to correct the articular set angle in adults is presented...
