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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Morphology of the brachial artery injuries in Gartland’s type III supracondylar fractures of the humerus in children

Supracondylar fractures of the humerus are the most common elbow fractures amongst children. Severe displacement in the cubital fossa can cause soft tissue injuries, in the case of Gartland’s classifi cation type III. Supracondylar fractures are high in energy and can cause injuries to the brachial artery. Injuries to the cubital fossa can disrupt blood fl ow in the distal part of […]

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 […]

Operative treatment of radial neck fractures in children – Metaizeau technique

Introduction:  The area of the elbow joint is exposed to frequent damage in children. Among them, the fracture of proximal radial bone may, depending on the type and the extent of bone fragments displacement, constitute a clinical problem, especially because of the possible consequences of open reduction. Metaizeau technique reduces the risk of their occurrence.  Objective:  The aim of the […]
