Efficacy of Self-Directed Learning in the Supracondylar Fracture Performance Improvement Module at an Academic Pediatric Orthopedic Institution

Maintenance of certification (MOC) within a medical society requires continuing medical education that demonstrates life-long learning, cognitive expertise, and practice-based self-assessment. This prospective study sought to evaluate whether a self-directed Practice Improvement Module (PIM) would improve pediatric orthopedic patient outcomes, thus demonstrating evidence of life...

Does operative fixation affect outcomes of displaced medial epicondyle fractures?

Purpose Long-term functional results remain equivocal between operative fixation and closed management of displaced humeral medial epicondyle fractures. The purpose of this study was to determine whether a functional difference exists between treatment types. Methods One hundred and forty patients with a displaced medial epicondyle fracture between 2007 and 2014 met the inclusion...

Extra-articular Drilling for Adolescents with Osteochondritis Dissecans of the Talus: A Lost Cause or a Call to Develop Better Treatment?

Objectives: To determine the radiographic outcome and need for further surgery in children with osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) of the talus treated with extra-articular drilling. Children requiring further surgery for pre-operative risk factors of the initial failure were also evaluated.

Normal Parameters Of Skeletally Immature Knees: Developmental Changes On Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Objectives: A child’s knee undergoes significant morphologic changes during development. Age-specific normal parameters have not been previously described. The purpose of this study was to delineate the changes that occur with growth utilizing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Classification of proximal tibial fractures in children

PurposeTo develop a classification system for all proximal tibial fractures in children that accounts for force of injury and fracture patterns.MethodsAt our institution, 135 pediatric proximal tibia fractures were treated from 1997 to 2005. Fractures were classified into four groups according to the direction of force of injury: valgus, varus, extension, and flexion–avulsion...
