INTRODUCTION: The cross Kirschner wire (k-wire) configuration in closed reduction and percutaneous pinning of paediatric supracondylar humeral fracture afford superior stability. However, medial pin placement presents a risk of iatrogenic ulnar nerve injury. This study describes, in step-by-step detail, another safe method of percutaneous medial pin insertion. METHODS: The technique involved placing the patient's arm in external rotation, with elbow flexed no more than 45° after closed reduction...

PURPOSE: Medial close wedge Coventry type osteotomy is commonly performed procedure for adoloscent Genu valgum. However this osteotomy has some inherent problems, a wedge resection causes shortening of affected site. An additional plate for stabilization causes increase in soft tissue dissection and surgical time. A cheveron osteotomy is an alternative procedure, not requiring any internal fixation due to its inherent stability. We started this study with aim to analyze the results of Cheveron osteotomy, to see if the osteotomy was stable enough without implants, time required for healing of osteotomy, post-operative range of motion, limb length discrepancy and to evaluate any other complication...

Fractures are the second most common abusive injury occurring in young children, particularly those under 2 years of age. The humerus is often affected. To better identify factors discriminating between abusive and non-abusive humerus fractures, this retrospective study examined the characteristics and mechanisms of injuries causing humerus fractures in children less than 18 months of age. Electronic medical records were reviewed for eligible patients evaluated between September 1, 2007 and January 1, 2012 at two children's hospitals in Chicago, IL...

OBJECTIVES: Assess the effect of proximal screw configuration on the strain in lateral plating of a simulated comminuted supracondylar femur fracture. METHODS: Fractures were simulated in twelve synthetic femurs by removing a 20mm section of bone, located 60mm from the intercondylar fossa and repaired via a 16-hole locked lateral plate instrumented with eight uniaxial strain gauges. Three proximal screw type configurations were evaluated: (1) four non-locking screws, (2) four locking screws, and (3) a hybrid configuration of two non-locking screws flanked by a locking screw at each end of the proximal fragment...

BACKGROUND: The vast majority of displaced pediatric supracondylar humeral fractures can be treated successfully with closed reduction and percutaneous pinning. The need for open reduction is difficult to determine a priori and is typically due to the failure of closed reduction attempts or persistent limb ischemia. The aims of this study were to determine the prevalence of flexion-type supracondylar humeral fractures, the rate of open reduction for flexion-type fractures, and the predictive impact of ulnar nerve injury on the need for open reduction for flexion-type supracondylar humeral fractures...

OBJECTIVE: The burden of musculoskeletal disease remains high in low-income countries, with a high rate of pediatric disease. Efforts continue for orthopedic education, but there is little guidance on local needs and desires. Our aim was to determine the specific content and modalities that would be most useful for pediatric orthopedic educational programs abroad, and we demonstrate a practical method of identifying country-specific educational deficits through a self-reported needs survey in Haiti...

Neonatal Salter-Harris I fractures of the distal humerus are a rare injury. This injury can be easily mistaken for a posterior elbow dislocation, creating a delay in diagnosis. We present a case of a neonate with a distal humerus Salter-Harris I fracture secondary to trauma during delivery. The patient presented with pseudoparesis of the left arm following birth. Posterior displacement of the elbow was identified on radiographs. Ultrasound of the elbow was performed after a gentle closed reduction of the left elbow was unsuccessful...

INTRODUCTION: Paediatric fractures are often of good prognosis due to auto-correction of insufficient fracture reduction by bone remodeling. In sub-Saharan Africa, traditional healers are renowned for managing fractures and there is a neglect for specialized pediatric fracture care. We aimed to determine the demographic characteristics, clinical presentation, treatment patterns and outcomes of paediatric fractures in a tertiary health care centre in Yaoundé. METHODS: We conducted a prospective cohort study of all consenting consecutive cases of fractures in patients younger than 16 years managed between January 2011 and June 2015 at the University Teaching Hospital, Cameroon...

BACKGROUND: Infected non-unions of the supracondylar region of the femur are uncommon. Even though hardware removal is a common procedure, it may lead to complications, including neurovascular injury, refracture, worsening pain or recurrence of deformity. CASE PRESENTATION: We report on a male who developed subcutaneous emphysema of the leg after hardware removal and bone allografting for an infected non-union of the distal femur. He was managed by debridement of the surgical wound, antibiotic therapy, multiple fasciotomies, and application of a VAC (vacuum-assisted closure) system...

The brachial plexus is commonly blocked at the interscalene level for shoulder and proximal humeral surgery. There are only a few publications about the interscalene technique in pediatric patients for a peripheral nerve block. Ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve block has become increasingly more popular for pediatric patients because of high success rates and safety concerns. We used ultrasound-guided interscalene brachial plexus block in an 18-month-old child with an acute upper respiratory infection who had a supracondylar fracture of the humerus...
