The need for emergent management of displaced paediatric supracondylar humeral fractures is being questioned in the literature. Open reduction rates of up to 46% have been reported in the non-emergent management of these injuries. At our institution these fractures are managed as operative emergencies by senior personnel. To examine the ongoing need for this policy we reviewed our results. All patients managed over a five year period with Gartland type IIB or III paeditric supracondylar humeral fractures were identified and a comprehensive chart and radiographic review undertaken...

Hypovolaemia is the most common cause of circulatory failure in children. Treatment consists of volume suppletion with a crystalloid or colloid solution; which agent is the best in children is not clear. This evidence-based practice guideline formulates recommendations as to which fluid should be used for volume suppletion in critically-ill neonates and children up to the age of 18 years with hypovolaemia. Before the guideline development first-choice fluid for volume resuscitation was in 50% a colloid and in 50% a crystalloid solution for both neonatologists and paediatric intensivists...

This study was performed to determine profile of toxigenicity of 18 Clostridium difficile strains isolated from paeditric patients suffering from antibiotic associated diarrhea (AAD). Toxigenicity of C. difficile strains was tested for detection toxin A and toxin B by phenotypic methods and for detection of the tcdA and tcdB genes using of PCR. Changes in the repeating regions of the tcdA genes were detected with the NK9/NKV011 primer pairs. For detection of binary toxin (CDT) cdtA and cdtB genes, cdtApos/cdtArev i cdtBpos/cdtBrev two pair primers in PCR was used...
