Traditional education, including reports from Salter and Harris, state that ankle injuries in skeletally immature pediatric patients are more likely to be physeal
fractures than ligamentous rupture.
Clinicoradiologically, diagnosis of Gustilo-Anderson Type IIIB Open Bilateral Distal Radius Physeal
Separation (Salter-Harris type I) with greenstick fracture of right distal ulna was established.
Some authors have stated that osteotomy of the trochanter major may lead to early physeal
closure and may cause growth retardation in the proximal femur (15).
The 'trampoline ankle': severe medial malleolar physeal
injuries in children and adolescents secondary to multioccupant use of trampolines.
Congenital fibular pseudarthrosis, longitudinal fibular deficiency, multiple hereditary exostoses (MHE), post-traumatic physeal
arrest, and myelodysplasia are examples in which distal fibular growth disruption can lead to unbalanced growth between the medial and lateral tibial epiphyses.
A similar but not identical entity is a distal radial physeal
fracture, (7) sometimes referred to as "gymnast's wrist.
injury is not a usual component of the supracondylar fracture of humerus in children, inappropriate treatment can cause this also.
Acute slipped capital femoral epiphysis: the importance of physeal
It is measured in the anteroposterior projection and defined as the angle which makes physeal
line of the lateral condyle and the longitudinal axis of the humerus--the line that divides the humerus in two equal parts in the longitudinal direction.
This text outlines a system of decision making in pediatric orthopedics for the treatment of deformities, dislocations, deficiencies, discrepancies of limb length, decreased joint mobility, paralyses, epiphyseal and physeal
problems, infections, and acquired defects in long bones.
change after tuberculous osteomyelitis of the long bone in children.
As fusion of the distal epiphysis is not complete until the mid-twenties, fractures of the lateral end in children usually result in a physeal
separation of the distal clavicle, rather than a true acromioclavicular (AC) separation [2-4].
