BACKGROUND Adolescents with chronic disease (ACD) must develop independent disease self-management and learn to communicate effectively with their health care team to transition from pediatric to adult-oriented health care systems. Disease-specific interventions have been implemented to aid specific ACD groups through transition. A generic approach might be(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Exposure to ionizing radiation from diagnostic imaging procedures (DIPs) has been associated with an increased risk of cancer in children. In particular, gastrointestinal imaging has been identified as a significant factor that contributes to exposure of children to radiation during diagnostic procedures. We performed a longitudinal(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Diagnostic imaging procedures (DIPs) producing radiation exposure in children have been associated with increased cancer risk. To develop effective clinical practice interventions that reduce pediatric radiation exposure, a longitudinal assessment of DIP ordering practices in the current clinical climate was performed. Our objective(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS To prepare for the transition from pediatric to adult-oriented health care systems, adolescents must develop the ability to obtain, process, and understand basic health information; make appropriate health decisions; and interact effectively with health care professionals. However, physicians use subjective methods to determine patients'(More)
BACKGROUND Lisfranc injuries result from high- and low-energy mechanisms though the literature has been more focused on high-energy mechanisms. A comparison of high-energy (HE) and low-energy (LE) injury patterns is lacking. The objective of this study was to report injury patterns in LE Lisfranc joint injuries and compare them to HE injury patterns. (More)
PURPOSE Patella-femoral dislocations, although rare, can result in functionally limiting symptoms and limited return to prior activity levels. The purpose of this study is to report outcomes of a three-in-one patellar realignment surgery for treatment of recurrent patellar instability in a young, active duty military population. METHODS We conducted a(More)
BACKGROUND There are 2 Level I studies comparing open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) and primary arthrodesis (PA) in high-energy Lisfranc injuries. There are no studies comparing ORIF and PA in young athletic patients with low-energy injuries. METHODS All operatively managed low-energy Lisfranc injuries sustained by active duty military personnel(More)
