Coronavirus lockdown effect on type 1 diabetes management οn children wearing insulin pump equipped with continuous glucose monitoring system

At the dawn of 2020, central China faced the outbreak of a highly transmittable, novel strain of the coronavirus, causing severe Illness that was subsequently named SARS-CoV-2 [1]. The coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19) is characterized by severe acute respiratory syndrome and has a high mortality rate especially among the elderly and people with serious underlying medical conditions irrespectively of age [2]. By the 11th of March and as more than 110 countries have reported numerous cases of COVID-19, WHO declared this outbreak as a pandemic [3].

This study aimed to investigate the feasibility and the efficacy of Dega osteotomy in combination with pelvic triple osteotomy or periacetabular osteotomy and femoral shortening with derotational osteotomy for the treatment of severe acetabular deformity secondary to DDH in children older than 9 years of age. The clinical data of 22 children treated at our institution were retrospectively collected. Pre- and postoperative hip radiographs were evaluated. Center-edge (CE) angle was measured, and Severin classification and McKay criteria were used to evaluate the final outcome. Twenty-two patients (including 21 female patient...

The Pavlik harness and the Tübingen hip flexion splint (Tübingen hip flexion splint) are two effective options for the early management of patients younger than 6 months of age with developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH). The main objective of this study was to evaluate the clinical and radiological outcomes of patients younger than 6 months of age with type IIb to IV DDH managed by Pavlik harness or Tübingen hip flexion splint. The Pavlik harness and Tübingen hip flexion splint groups were comparable regarding the affected side (P = 0.09), Graf grade (P = 0.635), an...

This study aimed to investigate the effect of age on the rates of redislocation, avascular necrosis (AVN) of the femoral head, and final radiographic outcomes in patients with developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) treated with closed reduction. A total of 308 hips (276 patients) with DDH treated with closed reduction were included and divided into three groups according to age (

In conclusion, both elastic stable intramedullary nailing and external fixation can achieve satisfactory clinical and radiographic outcomes in children with acute Monteggia fractures. However, the rate of residual pain and less satisfactory clinical appearance was higher in patients managed by external fixation compared to those treated by elastic stable intramedullary nailing. According to our results, elastic stable intramedullary nailing should be used as primary treatment option in children with acute Monteggia fracture requiring surgical management.

The aim of this study was to describe the radiographic appearance and to evaluate the elbow function with the Mayo elbow performance score (MEPS) in children with medial condyle fracture of the distal humerus (MCFH) who were treated surgically. During the period of 2011–2017, a total of 10 patients (three boys, seven girls) were retrospectively reviewed after obtaining institutional review board approval. All patients underwent open reduction and percutaneous pinning fixation. The average age at the time of injury was 7.7 years (range: 4.0–12.5 years), and the mean follow up was 43.9 months...

Multidirectionally unstable supracondylar humeral fractures cause severe instability in both flexion and extension movements. The traditional closed reduction often fails to overcome this lack of stability. The aim of this study is to use a closed reduction technique with a transolecranon pin to achieve temporary stability. From 35 pediatric multidirectionally unstable supracondylar humeral fractures hospitalized between March 2012 and March 2018 at our hospital, 23 fractures (65.7%) were treated with closed reduction and percutaneous pinning (CRPP) (group 1) and the remaining twelve fractures (34.3%) were treated utilizin...

The aim of this study was to explore the clinical features and surgical treatment methods of unstable midfoot injuries in children. Eleven children with severe unstable midfoot injuries admitted to Jishuitan Hospital, Beijing, from June 2009 to October 2016 were enrolled, including seven patients with Lisfranc injuries and four patients with Chopart injuries. All Lisfranc injuries had radiographic data from the healthy sides, and radiographs of the affected sides showed that all injured Lisfranc joints separated more than 3 mm compared with the healthy sides. The treatment methods employed a joint-spanning external fixator...

This study aimed to determine a strategy to successfully manage distal femoral FFCD. Nine case of femoral FFCD treated in our department between 2008 and 2018, together with 22 cases from literature, were retrospectively reviewed. Tibiofemoral anatomical axis angle (TFA) was used to evaluate and follow the deformities. Treatment methods and outcome were analyzed. Five methods were used to manage the disease: osteotomy with tether release in 14 cases with mean TFA of 29°; simple tether release in eight cases with mean TFA of 31°; guide growth without tether release in 3 case with mean TFA of 27°; guide growth wi...
