Aim  To determine the epidemiology and complications of spinal cord injuries (SCIs) in children injured at 5 years of age and younger who were seen between 1981 and 2008 at a children’s hospital in the USA. 
Outcomes of spinal cord injuries in young children
The study by Schotter et al. provides critical information on a large population of children who sustained spinal cord injuries (SCI) at 5 years of age or younger and describes the outcomes for thisExpand
Spinal cord injury in pediatric age in Spain. Reality of a national reference center
TLDR
The findings of this study contribute to the knowledge regarding the situation of children with SCI in Spain as the incidence of pediatric SCI is very low; however, the provision of care remains a personal and social challenge. Expand

Head and Neck Trauma
TLDR
Critically injured children with TBI require the close coordination of management between the PICU team, the trauma surgeon, and the neurosurgeon. Expand
Long-term outcome of paediatric spinal cord injury
TLDR
With initial active physiological conservative management of the majority of patients, patient education and ongoing support the most of patients achieved long-term survival and led independent and productive lives. Expand
Scoliosis in paediatric onset spinal cord injuries
TLDR
The results suggest that age below 14.6 years was a predictor for scoliosis, and once adjustment is made for age, the incidence ofScoliosis does not differ between traumatic and neurological aetiologies of paediatric SCI injury. Expand
Epidemiology of vertebral fractures in pediatric and adolescent patients
TLDR
If a vertebral fracture is found in children and adolescents, it is highly recommended to exclude synchronous additional spine fractures in other levels; prevention should concentrate on fall and traffic accidents. Expand
Traumatic spinal cord injuries: A retrospective cohort study of children seen in Western Australia between 1996 and 2016.
TLDR
Children with medical complexity are responsive to rehabilitation but have a high burden of care, requiring multiple-specialty care and hospital re-admissions. Expand
Pediatric Cervical Spine Injuries: A Rare But Challenging Entity
TLDR
Knowledge of biomechanical properties and radiographic presentation of the immature spine can improve the awareness for PCSI and outline that initial management is crucial for long-term outcome. Expand
The epidemiology of childhood and adolescent traumatic spinal cord injury in the United States: 2007-2010.
TLDR
RTA-related TSCI disproportionately affects young children, while firearm-relatedTSCI is most common among adolescents, and prevention may be key in mitigating rising healthcare cost. Expand

TLDR
The ISCSCI exams may have poor utility in children under 4 years, while reliability values for the motor and sensory exams met or exceeded recommended values, wide CI suggest poor precision of the motor exam in children over 15 years of age and sensory tests inChildren under 5 years. Expand
