Evaluation of the incidence of complications during the treatment of diaphyseal forearm fractures using elastic intramedullary nailing in children

Introduction. Diaphyseal forearm fractures constitute the second most numerous group of injuries to the locomotor system in children, right after the injuries of the distal part of forearm bones. Most often, diaphyseal forearm fractures in children occur through an indirect mechanism. In the treatment of diaphyseal forearm fractures in children, the aim is to achieve union, correct length and axis […]

Treatment of pediatric diaphyseal femoral fractures with intramedullary fixation

Femoral fractures are found in the daily practice of pediatric orthopedic traumatologists. This is related to the specificity of the child’s skeletal system, different biology and methods used to treat these injuries. Diaphyseal femoral fractures account for approximately 3% of all long bone fractures in children and adolescents. They usually occur as a result of high energy injuries. This type of damage […]

Operative treatment of pediatric diaphyseal both-bone forearm fractures with flexible intramedullary fixation

Forearm fractures constitute the largest group of injuries in children’s musculoskeletal system. When treating these injuries, we strive to achieve a complete union, not forgetting to restore the correct axis and limb length, which later determines proper functioning of the upper limb. As far as treatment is concerned, the operative method of choice selected more and more is the elastic (flexible) intramedullary […]

Comparison of complications of the treatment of diaphyseal forearm fractures in children with respect to the treatment method

Introduction. Forearm fractures are the second most common injuries to the locomotor system in children, after injuries to the distal forearm. Usually, pediatric forearm fractures occur due to indirect violence. In the treatment of forearm fractures in children, we aim to achieve union, correct length and axis of both forearm bones. Forearm fractures can be treated non-operatively, with casting, as well as […]

Avulsion fracture of the tibial insertion of the PCL in child – case report

The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) plays a relevant role in maintaining proper mechanical stability of the knee joint. Avulsion fracture of the tibial insertion of the PCL is a very rare injury in children. Despite of clinical signs, radiologic studies are fundamental for its correct diagnosis and treatment. Its might be treated either conservative or operative. In children population there are not […]

Treatment of fractures for lateral part of humeral condyle in children – a single-center experience

Introduction. Elbow fractures are among the most common injuries of the locomotor system in children, second only to forearm fractures. Diagnostic and treatment errors often lead to complications. The presence of ossification centres must be taken into consideration when analysing and interpreting x-ray images. The many classifications do not reflect the whole picture of the injury in question, which is characterised by […]

Surgery technique of an anatomical MPFL reconstruction using allograft in children with recurrent patellar dislocation

Purpose: The objective of the study was to demonstrate the surgical technique of medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction with a cadaver’s allograft in children. Methods: 15 children in age 12 to 15 years with recurrent patellar dislocation underwent MPFL reconstruction. Surgery was performed using cadavers’ allograft. The mean age of the patients was 13.1 years and the mean follow-up was 14 months. All […]
