2006 Limping Child eMedicine

Location: http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1258835-overview

The differential diagnoses of a limp in a child are broad. Normal age-related gait must first be differentiated from gait impairment. Once gait impairment is identified, differential diagnoses are narrowed as the history and physical examination findings begin to suggest a source for the limp. In many instances, a diagnosis...

Stress Fracture eMedicine PMR

Location: http://www.emedicine.com/pmr/topic134.htm

Stress fractures are overuse injuries of bone. These fractures, which may be nascent or complete, result from repetitive subthreshold loading that, over time, exceeds the bone's intrinsic ability to repair itself. Briefhaupt originally described stress fractures in military recruits in 1855. Our present understanding of the pathophysiology of stress fractures...

Efficacy of different fixation devices in maintaining an initial reduction for surgically managed distal radius fractures

Location: http://www.cma.ca/multimedia/staticContent/HTML/N0/l2/cjs/vol-52/issue-5/pdf/pgE161.pdf

The best method of treatment for these fractures remains controversial. We sought to examine radiographic outcomes of patients treated with nonspanning external fixator (NSEF), open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) with locking plates and screws or closed reduction and percutaneous pinning (CRPP) and compare their ability to maintain radiographic parameters over the initial 6-week postoperative...
