PURPOSE The main objective of the study was to present the influence of the morphological shape of the proximal femoral growth plate in children as one of the risk factors for the incidence of slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) in adolescents. METHODS This research is based on the X-ray, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)(More)
The results of operative correction of 13 cases of tibia vara in 10 children with advanced infantile Blount's disease are presented. All of the children were operated by "double-elevating" osteotomy. An essential element of this procedure was the reconstruction of the horizontal level of the medial tibial plateau. The average follow-up after treatment was 8(More)
The level of selected parameters of the coagulation system and fibrynolysis (prothrombin time, partial thromboplastin time, fibrinogen level, albumin C system, V Leiden factor and III antithrombin level) in 25 children who had been treated with Perthes disease was evaluated. In three children prolonged prothrombin time occurred; in one child anomalous(More)
BACKGROUND Ichthyosis Follicularis, Atrichia and Photophobia (IFAP) syndrome is a rare genodermatosis due to mutations of the MBTPS2 gene. To date fewer than 40 cases have been described in the literature. OBJECTIVES To present the first case of IFAP diagnosed in Poland due to a novel mutation of MBTPS2, and to review the relevant literature on this rare(More)
Radiograms of 173 children with unilateral Perthes disease were reviewed with particular reference to the presence of flattening and irregularity of the 'unaffected' epiphyses. The slope and shape of the growth plate were also evaluated. About 35% of children with Perthes disease showed changes of the unaffected proximal femur in the first radiograms of the(More)
The wrist angle in X-ray pictures of the hand in 47 children, aged 6-16 years, treated for bone growth disorders, was evaluated. The obtained results were compared with the wrist angle in normal children. The increase of the wrist angle was observed in deformations: dwarfism, gargoylism and dysplasia multiplex, and the decrease of this angle in the Turner(More)
The literature on Perthes' disease points up the significance of specific anatomical conditions affecting vascularization of the femoral head, as well as immaturity and mechanical weakening of the bone tissue in the etiology and pathogenesis of this disorder in children. An experimental study using calf femurs as models confirmed the author's hypothesis(More)
