Forearm Fractures in Children Patient Information AAOS

Location: http://orthoinfo.aaos.org/topic.cfm?topic=A00039

Children love to run, hop, skip, jump and tumble. But if they fall onto an outstretched arm, they could break one or both of the bones in the forearm. Forearm fractures account for 40 to 50 percent of all childhood fractures. Fractures can occur near the wrist at the farthest (distal)... Highly Reputable

Sacral Fractures RCSED

Location: http://www.rcsed.ac.uk/fellows/lvanrensburg/classification/pelvis/sacrum.htm

Usually consider sacral fractures in conjunction with pelvic fractures.
Unrecognized and inadequately treated sacral fractures may lead to painful deformity and progressive loss of neurological function.
Delayed surgery for posttraumatic sacral deformity is complex, and the results are often less favourable than after early surgery.

Do corticosteroids reduce the risk of fat embolism syndrome in patients with long-bone fractures

Location: http://www.cma.ca/multimedia/staticContent/HTML/N0/l2/cjs/vol-52/issue-5/pdf/pg386.pdf

Our objective was to determine the effect of corticosteroids in preventing FES in patients with long-bone fractures.
Conclusion: Evidence suggests that corticosteroids may be beneficial in preventing FES and hypoxia but not mortality in patients with long-bone fractures. The risk of infection is not increased with the use of cortisosteroids. However, methodological limitations of...

Lateral tibial rim Segond fractures

Location: http://radiology.rsna.org/content/180/3/731.full.pdf+html

The magnetic resonance (MR) imaging characteristics of lateral tibial rim (Segond) fractures and their associated injuries were reviewed in 12 patients with radiographic evidence of this fracture. Bone marrow adjacent to the fracture emitted a focally abnormal MR signal, which indicated an injury of the lateral capsular junction. The Segond...

Phalangeal Fractures eMedicine Orthopedics

Location: http://www.emedicine.com/orthoped/topic258.htm

Phalangeal fractures are common injuries that may significantly affect hand function if not managed appropriately. Closed treatment has been the historical mainstay of treatment. Percutaneous pinning allowed the conversion of more unstable fracture patterns to stable configurations capable of tolerating early motion. More recently, minifragment screws and plates were developed...

Vertebral Body Fractures Without Radiologic Collapse
Osteoporotic vertebral fractures with no sign of vertebral collapse on initial radiographs do indeed exist. They are analogous to occult stress fractures well known in other skeletal sites. They must not be misdiagnosed as malignant lesions.

Percutaneous Kirschner-wire pinning for severely displaced distal radial fractures in children

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/77-B/5/797

Distal radial fractures are common in children. Recent outcome studies have cast doubt on the success of treatment by closed reduction and application of plaster. The most important risk factor for poor outcome is translation of the fracture. If a distal radial fracture is displaced by more than half the...

Evaluation of the Risk of Pathologic Fractures Secondary to Metastatic Bone Disease

Location: http://www.bonetumor.org/evaluation-pathological-fracture-risk-introduction

Pathologic fractures create a serious morbidity in patients with metastatic bone disease. Orthopedic surgeons who treat patients with metastatic skeletal lesions should focus on proactive treatments designed to prevent pathologic fractures before they occur. Prevention of pathologic fractures result in better patient outcome, lower cost, and less difficult operative procedures....

Tibial fractures encompass a wide spectrum of mechanisms of injury, from high-energy, trauma to low-energy, rotational injury. The papers presented at the Annual Meeting of the Orthopaedic Trauma Association, September 14-16, 2000, focused on the management techniques and outcome of open tibial shaft fractures, metadiaphyseal nailing, and plateau fractures.

Fractures of the tibial spine in children

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/70-B/2/228.pdf

Forty-five patients with fractures of the tibial spine were reviewed 3 to 10 years after injury in order to determine the degree of residual laxity of the cruciate or collateral ligaments. After fractures which had been partially or completely displaced, some anterior cruciate laxity was evident, even if patients were asymptomatic....

Intrathoracic scapular impaction:an unusual complication of scapular fractures

Location: http://www.cma.ca/multimedia/staticContent/HTML/N0/l2/cjs//vol-52/issue-3/pdf/pgE62.pdf

Scapular fractures make up 5% of shoulder fractures and require significant force to occur. Patients often have associated injuries, leading to a mortality of 10% for this patient population. Most scapular fractures can be treated conservatively with sling immobilization and early range-of-motion (ROM) exercises. We report the case of a...

Thoracic spine fractures, especially those resulting from high energy, can be devastating, often resulting in permanent neurologic injury. Neurologic deficit is encountered in 10-25% of all spinal column injuries, irrespective of the level of injury. A deficit occurs in 15-20% of all thoracolumbar injuries. In the event of a complete...

Wildstein & Schutte 2007
Femoral neck stress fractures are a common cause of hip pain in select populations. Chronic, repetitive activity that is common to runners and military recruits predisposes these populations to femoral neck stress fractures. These injuries must be differentiated from insufficiency fractures, which, although similar in appearance and...
