BACKGROUND Pediatric pelvic fractures are rare injuries resulting from high-energy mechanisms that warrant an extensive work-up for associated injuries. OBJECTIVES We performed a retrospective study to review concomitant injuries in children who suffered a pelvic fracture and have an open triradiate cartilage. METHODS Using a database, pediatric pelvic(More)
Diagnosing ulnar-sided carpometacarpal joint dislocation is difficult, and more than half of injuries are missed on initial examination. The authors hypothesized that measuring the angle between the capitate and the metacarpals (capitate-metacarpal angle) on a plain radiograph would provide a simple, reliable tool to aid in the diagnosis of ulnar-sided(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to review pelvic fractures and concomitant orthopaedic injuries in children who have a patent triradiate cartilage (TRO) compared with children whose triradiate cartilage has closed (TRC). We hypothesise that these injuries will differ, leading to correlated alterations in management. PATIENTS AND METHODS Using a(More)
PURPOSE The repair of zone II flexor tendon injuries is an evolving topic in hand surgery with current literature suggesting the use of a 4-strand repair; 3-0 or 4-0 braided, nonabsorbable sutures; and an epitendinous repair. It was hypothesized that variability would exist within the hand surgeon community in treatment of zone II flexor tendon repairs in(More)
INTRODUCTION The hoverboard, a self-balancing powered scooter, was introduced to the market in 2015 and quickly became one of the most popular purchases of the year. As with similar products, this scooter brought a host of concerns surrounding injuries. The purpose of this study is to determine the incidence of injuries that coincided with the popularity of(More)
The objective of this study was to analyze if the addition of CT changed the management of femoral shaft fractures caused by gunshot wounds when compared to those managed with plain radiography alone. METHODS A multiple-choice, single-answer electronic survey was created to compare utility of advanced imaging when treating femur fractures resulting from(More)
BACKGROUND Although penetrating injury is the most common reason for pediatric trauma recidivism, there is a paucity of literature specifically looking at this population. The objective of this study was to identify those in the pediatric community at the highest levels of risk for experiencing gunshot wound (GSW) on multiple occasions. METHODS A(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the quantifiable difference in pubic symphysis diastasis when comparing computed tomography (CT) and pelvic radiographs in individuals with anterior pelvic ring injuries. DESIGN Retrospective chart and radiographic review. SETTING Level 1 trauma center. PATIENTS/PARTICIPANTS Between 2002 and 2013, all individuals requiring(More)
Improvements in imaging and treatment of musculoskeletal tumors have increased the variety of options for reconstruction following joint-sparing diaphyseal resection. The purpose of this case series was to show that reconstruction of malignant tumors of the radial shaft with an intercalary prosthesis may be an option for patients with segmental bone loss.(More)
