Thoracic and lumbar cortical bone trajectory pedicle screws have been described in adult spine surgery. They have likewise been described in pediatric CT-based morphometric studies; however, clinical experience in the pediatric age group is limited. The authors here describe the use of cortical bone trajectory pedicle screws in posterior instrumented spinal fusions from the upper thoracic to the lumbar spine in 12 children. This dedicated study represents the initial use of cortical screws in pediatric spine surgery...

RATIONALE: Fracture of the clavicle is a very common injury in children. However, association between clavicle fracture and atlantoaxial rotatory displacement is rarely observed. PATIENT CONCERNS: We present a case of an 8-year-old girl, who suffered a right clavicle fracture as a result of a sledge accident. Six weeks after figure of 8 casting for a right clavicle fracture, an 8-year-old girl was brought to the Pediatric Orthopedic Department due to torticollis...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this review is to discuss the epidemiology, pathoanatomy, diagnosis, and clinical management of pediatric and adolescent patients following a first-time shoulder dislocation. RECENT FINDINGS: Shoulder instability is becoming increasingly common as pediatric and adolescent patients engage in earlier organized sports competition. Recommended treatment following a first-time glenohumeral dislocation event in adolescents depends on several factors, but surgical stabilization is becoming more frequently performed...

Importance: Daily use of inhaled corticosteroids is a widely recommended treatment for mild persistent asthma in children. There is concern that, similar to systemic corticosteroids, inhaled corticosteroids may have adverse effects on bone health. Objective: To determine whether there is an increased risk of bone fracture associated with inhaled corticosteroid use in children with asthma. Design, Setting, and Participants: In this population-based nested case-control study, we used health administrative databases to identify a cohort of children aged 2 to 18 years with a physician diagnosis of asthma between April 1, 2003, and March 31, 2014, who were eligible for public drug coverage through the Ontario Drug Benefit Program (Ontario, Canada)...

BACKGROUND: In an effort to standardize management and reduce over-treatment of uncomplicated paediatric fractures, the Victorian Pediatric Orthopaedic Network and the Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne, created publically available web-based paediatric fracture pathways. The aim of this study was to determine the impact of web-based fracture pathways on the clinic volume at a tertiary-care paediatric fracture clinic. METHODS: A comparative retrospective review was performed at a large, urban, tertiary-care children's hospital...

PURPOSE: Nonunion is a common complication of lateral condyle humeral (LCH) fractures in children. In situ fixation with a screw and bone grafting is the classically-recommended method of treatment. The purpose of this study is to analyze the feasibility of obtaining a vascularized periosteal flap obtained from the lateral humerus and based on the posterior collateral radial vessels (PCRV). Second, to report the results after the application in two pediatric cases. METHODS: Periosteal branches of PCRV were studied in ten upper limbs from fresh human cadavers...

BACKGROUND: Sports injuries are common in pediatric and adolescent patients and the evaluation and treatment of these injuries continues to evolve. The purpose of this review is to provide a comprehensive appraisal of the most recent literature, highlighting updates on sports-related upper extremity injuries in pediatric patients. METHODS: An electronic search of the PubMed, EMBASE, and Google Scholar databases was performed for keywords related to pediatric overhead athletes, osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) of the capitellum, medial epicondyle fractures, shoulder instability, and clavicle fractures...

Objectives: The frequency of tinnitus in children and adults is practically the same. However, although adults reveal their symptoms and seek for medical aid, the suffering often remains unrecognized in the young. This is due to both the inability of children to properly describe their symptoms and the lack of recognition. Materials and methods: Among 5768 patients entering our department with complaints of tinnitus between 2010 and 2015, there were only 112 children...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Blunt cerebrovascular injury (BCVI) is clinically challenging because these injuries are hard to detect and can have serious neurological consequences, and optimal screening criteria have not been established for children. This study aims to determine risk factors for BCVI in pediatric patients and to evaluate screening practices in a single institutional series. METHODS: A retrospective review of all pediatric blunt trauma patients evaluated over a 10-year period was performed...

We compared the outcomes of nonoperative and operative treatments of triplane fractures. Thirty-three patients with triplane fractures were treated conservatively (n=19) or surgically (n=14). Bone union and postoperative complications were radiographically examined. The mean American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society scores were 100 (nonoperative group) and 98.1 (operative group) (P=0.304). The modified Weber protocol scores were excellent in both groups. One patient in each group showed a leg-length discrepancy of more than 10 mm at the last follow-up...

Traumatic bone cysts (TBCs) are uncommon intraosseous lesions, classified as pseudocysts because they lack an epithelial membrane lining. The etiology of a pseudocyst has not been determined. Various hypotheses have been put forward to explain its pathogenesis, of which the traumatic-hemorrhagic theory is the most commonly accepted. Minor trauma, insufficient to cause fracture or iatrogenic injury, is commonly implicated as the stimulus initiating cyst formation. A TBC presenting after jaw fracture has been rarely reported in the literature...

Trauma remains the leading cause of death in children, of which the majority of patients have orthopedic injuries. The range of injured bones is various, each requiring knowledge and expertise to appropriately manage in a timely fashion. The importance of a systematic approach to the pediatric polytrauma patient is paramount. This chapter will highlight orthopedic issues important to the pediatric polytrauma patient including the unique anatomy and properties of pediatric bone. A systematic approach to the pediatric polytrauma patient will also be discussed...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to describe patient-reported pain outcomes at various stages of an emergency department (ED) visit for pediatric limb injury. METHODS: This prospective cohort consisted of 905 patients aged 4 to 17 years with acute limb injury and a minimum initial pain score of 4/10. Patients reported pain scores and treatments offered and received at each stage of their ED visit. Multiple logistic regression was used to identify predictors for severe pain on initial assessment and moderate or severe pain at ED discharge...

BACKGROUND: Fractures in pediatrics show epidemiological characteristics which are different from fractures in adults. The objective of this study was to examine the injury profiles of open upper extremity fractures (UEFs) in all modes of injury related to road traffic accidents (RTAs) in adult and pediatric hospitalized patients. METHODS: Data on 103,465 RTA patients between 1997 and 2013 whose records were entered in a centralized country trauma database were reviewed...

The management of fractures in children is complex compared to that of adults because of greater elasticity of bone, presence of tooth buds, faster healing rate, potential for future growth and lesser co-operative ability. Fractures of the mandible in children are conventionally treated by circummandibular wiring. This paper reports a variation in the technique of using circummandibular wiring with acrylic splints in the conservative treatment of mandibular fractures in two pediatric patients.
