STUDY DESIGN Focused review of the literature. OBJECTIVE Assist spine specialists in diagnosis and treatment of cervical spine anomalies found in selected genetic syndromes. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Cervical spine instability and/or stenosis are potentially debilitating problems in many genetic syndromes. These problems can be overlooked among the(More)
BACKGROUND Growing-rod spinal instrumentation systems are a valuable tool for managing severe early-onset scoliosis. There is little information about the end point of treatment. METHODS A multicenter early-onset-scoliosis database was searched to identify patients who had undergone treatment with growing rods and either had had a final operative(More)
PURPOSE T-condylar fractures of the distal humerus are infrequent injuries in children. There are little data regarding outcomes in this age group. The adult literature demonstrates a high rate of postinjury stiffness. We describe a large series of T-condylar fractures in children and set out to identify factors that influence the postoperative range of(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine which method of operative fixation, plate and screw, or intramedullary nails (IMN) fixation is superior for pediatric both bone forearm fractures (BBFF). DATA SOURCES PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane, from 1980 to 2011, in English. STUDY SELECTION We selected for detailed review all studies with children or adolescents with(More)
Importance The Telemedicine Approaches to Evaluating Acute-Phase Retinopathy of Prematurity (e-ROP) Study telemedicine system of remote fundus image grading and The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Retinopathy of Prematurity (CHOP-ROP) postnatal weight gain predictive model are 2 approaches for improving ROP screening efficiency. Current screening has(More)
PURPOSE Postnatal-growth-based predictive models demonstrate strong potential for improving the low specificity of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) screening. Prior studies are limited by inadequate sample size. We sought to study a sufficiently large cohort of at-risk infants to enable development of a model with highly precise estimates of sensitivity for(More)
