PURPOSE: Operative fixation of pediatric femur fractures with intramedullary implants has grown in popularity in recent decades. However, risk factors for short-term adverse events and readmission have not been well studied. METHODS: Pediatric patients who underwent intramedullary nailing of a femur fracture between 2012 and 2013 were identified from the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database. Risk factors for any adverse event (AAE) and readmission after intramedullary nailing were evaluated using univariate and multivariate analysis...

BACKGROUND: Hip spica casting regimens for the treatment of femoral shaft fractures in a pediatric population aged 1 to 3 years vary. Patient charts were reviewed to determine if there are any clinical differences between 3 and 4 weeks in an ambulatory single-leg hip spica (SLHS) cast versus 6 to 8 weeks in a standard double-leg, non-weight-bearing hip spica cast. METHODS: The medical records of 109 patients with femoral shaft fractures treated with a hip spica casting from January 1, 2008 to December 31, 2011 were examined...

BACKGROUND: Trochanteric entry femoral nails have been increasing in popularity in the pediatric population for stabilization in fractures and osteotomies. The proper position for entry point in the coronal plane has been well studied; however, the sagittal plane in the pediatric population has not yet been well characterized. METHODS: Eighty-eight cadaveric femora aged 8 to 20 years were studied in an apparent neck-shaft angle (ANSA) position, with distal condyles flat on the surface, and a true neck-shaft angle (TNSA) position, with internal rotation to neutralize femoral anteversion...

PURPOSE: A common treatment for pediatric femur fractures is intramedullary nail (IMN) insertion. Elastic stable intramedullary nails (ESINs) are often used for these procedures in heavier patients, but the potential for complications and malunion is greater. We describe here a rigid IMN specifically designed for adolescents, the adolescent lateral entry femoral nail (ALFN). The purpose of this study was to compare the recovery and complications for patients treated with ESINs to those treated with the ALFN...

BACKGROUND: Femur fractures account for 1.4% to 1.7% of all pediatric fractures. The use of the Pavlik harness has been described for infants; however, previous reports have included only short-term follow-up. This study describes the multiyear clinical and radiographic results from patients younger than 6 months of age treated with a Pavlik harness. METHODS: The clinical and radiographic records were reviewed for all children under the age of 6 months who were treated with a Pavlik harness for an isolated femoral shaft fracture at a level 1 pediatric trauma center...
