Glenohumeral Deformity Secondary to Brachial Plexus Birth Palsy
TLDR
The status of the glenohumeral joint must be addressed when the choice between tendon transfer and humeral derotation osteotomy for reconstruction of the shoulder is considered for patients with persistent palsy. Expand
A Systematic Review of Medial and Lateral Entry Pinning Versus Lateral Entry Pinning for Supracondylar Fractures of the Humerus
TLDR
It is indicated that medial/lateral entry pinning, of pediatric supracondylar fractures, remains the most stable configuration and that care needs to be taken regardless of technique to avoid iatrogenic nerve injury and loss of reduction. Expand

TLDR
This manuscript will review the literature and focus on the present controversies regarding natural history, microsurgical treatment, and secondary shoulder reconstructive surgery in infants with brachial plexus birth palsies, to make recommendations for microsurgery and shoulder reconstruction. Expand
Current concepts in the management of brachial plexus birth palsy.
TLDR
Recommendations for both microsurgery and shoulder reconstruction with tendon transfer and arthroscopic and open reductions are presented. Expand

TLDR
Soft-tissue rebalancing procedures alone were found to have halted the progression of, but not to have markedly decreased, glenohumeral dysplasia at the time of a two to five-year follow-up, and significantly improved global shoulder function. Expand
Lateral entry compared with medial and lateral entry pin fixation for completely displaced supracondylar humeral fractures in children. A randomized clinical trial.
TLDR
Both lateral entryPin fixation and medial and lateral entry pin fixation are effective in the treatment of completely displaced (type-III) extension supracondylar fractures of the humerus in children. Expand

TLDR
The present study confirms the observation of Gilbert and Tassin that it is rare for infants who have recovery of biceps function after the age of three months to have complete neurological recovery. Expand
Upper Extremity Injuries in the Paediatric Athlete
TLDR
Recognition of injury patterns with early activity modification and the initiation of efficacious treatment can prevent deformity/disability and return the youth athlete to sport. Expand
Neurovascular Injury and Displacement in Type III Supracondylar Humerus Fractures
TLDR
It is concluded that posterolateral displacement in type III supracondylar humerus fractures is strongly associated with median nerve injuries and Posteromedial displacement is responsible for injuries to the radial nerve in virtually every instance. Expand
Operative fixation of Monteggia fractures in children.

  • 1 September 1996
TLDR
All the early fractures and six of the eight late referrals had good or excellent results and the two poor results were in patients with malalignment and dislocation of the radial head persisting for at least two weeks before definitive treatment. Expand
