BACKGROUND Pediatric avulsion fractures of the anterior tibial spine are injuries similar to anterior cruciate ligament injuries in adults. Sparse data exists on the association between anterior tibial spine fractures (ATSFs) and injury to the meniscus or cartilage of the knee joint in children. This research presents a retrospective review of clinical(More)
Individuals with cerebral palsy (CP) cannot take a normal activity like walking for granted. CP is the most common pediatric neurologic disorder, with an incidence of 3.6 per 1000 live births. The current trend in the treatment of individuals with CP is to perform a thorough evaluation including a complete patient history from birth to present, a(More)
BACKGROUND Orientation abnormalities of the acetabulum and femur have been implicated in early-onset coxarthrosis. The purpose of this study was to identify clinical examination findings predictive of such hip morphologies. METHODS A consecutive cohort of 221 patients (442 hips) undergoing hip arthroscopy was included. Demographic characteristics(More)
BACKGROUND Anterior tibial spine fractures (ATSF) in the skeletally immature parallel anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears in adult patients, yet these injuries are generally regarded as mutually exclusive. Biomechanical analysis suggests that intrinsic ACL damage occurs during ATSF, and long-term clinical studies demonstrate residual anteroposterior knee(More)
SUMMARY A controlled single-blind trial has been carried out to determine the value of long-term anticholinergic therapy in duodenal ulcer. Of 106 male patients with symptomatic and radiologically proven duodenal ulcer admitted to the trial, 91 completed the study. Patients were divided randomly into three groups. They received either glycopyrronium, or(More)
BACKGROUND The Evan's calcaneal lengthening osteotomy is a treatment method for spastic flatfoot deformity in patients with cerebral palsy that fail nonoperative measures. Autograft and allograft have been reported as potential graft choices. Bovine xenograft has been introduced as an alternative, but limited human data exists supporting its efficacy. This(More)
Percutaneous epiphysiodesis using transphyseal screws is a common method for treatment of limb length discrepancy and angular deformity. The authors report 3 cases of a previously unreported complication following treatment with percutaneous epiphysiodesis using transphyseal screws: bending of the transphyseal screw. In each case, this rare complication was(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this single-blinded, randomized, controlled trial was to compare the analgesic efficacy of intra-articular injections of bupivacaine or ropivacaine with that of no injection for postoperative pain control after the operative treatment of supracondylar humeral fractures in a pediatric population. METHODS Subjects (n=124) were(More)
BACKGROUND Avulsion fractures of the anterior tibial spine in young athletes are injuries similar to anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries in adults. Sparse data exist on the association between anterior tibial spine fractures (ATSFs) and later ligamentous laxity or injuries leading to ACL reconstruction. PURPOSE To better delineate the incidence of(More)
