Foreign body-related extremity trauma in children: A single-center experience
We report our experience of extremity foreign body trauma in order to increase awareness of this disease entity. The retrospective series of 24 retained foreign bodies was based on a 10-year chart review of emergency data (ICD code Z18). Patients with both upper and lower limb affections were included. Patients with ocular, otolaryngeal, tracheobronchial, gastrointestinal, and axial foreign bodies were excluded from the study. Male predominance (M:F = 20:4), young patient age (mean 6.8 years), variable lag period for consultation (range 3 h–8 years), and majority lower limb affection (58%; foot [7; 29%] a...

Optimizing management of open fractures in children
Akshat Sharma, Vikas Gupta, Kumar ShashikantIndian Journal of Orthopaedics 2018 52(5):470-480Open fractures in children differ from adults owing to their better healing potential. Management strategies for open fracture in children are changing with improvement in our understanding of soft-tissue reconstruction and fracture fixation. A literature review was performed for articles covering management of open fractures in children. The cornerstones of management include prevention of infection, debridement, and skeletal stabilization with soft-tissue coverage. The injury should be categorized according to the established tra...

Growth plate injuries of the lower extremity: Case examples and lessons learned
Conclusions: Growth plate injuries of the lower extremity require a high index of suspicion and close monitoring during skeletal growth. Early recognition and proper management of these injuries can minimize long term morbidity. The treatment plan should be individualized after a comprehensive analysis of the injury pattern in each patient. Establishing a long term treatment plan and discussing the prognosis of these injuries with the child's caretakers is imperative. (Source: Indian Journal of Orthopaedics)

Management of orthopaedic injuries in multiply injured child
Om Lahoti, Anand AryaIndian Journal of Orthopaedics 2018 52(5):454-461Multiply injured child is a unique challenge to the medical communities worldwide. It is a leading cause of preventable mortality and morbidity in children. Common skeletal injuries include closed or open fractures of tibia and femur and pelvic injuries. Initial management focuses on saving life and then saving limb as per pediatric advanced life support and advanced trauma life support. Orthopedic management of open fracture includes splinting the limb, administration of prophylactic antibiotic, and surgical debridement of the wound when safe. However, ...

Snapping phenomenon after revisional total knee arthroplasty
In this report, snapping phenomenon after final implantation of revision TKA has been presented. Snapping was caused by adhered iliotibial band (ITB) impinging against the lateral part of femoral component. Fractional lengthening the ITB by puncture resolved the snapping phenomenon. Surgeons should be aware of the presence of such a case which should be identified during operation to avoid secondary operations. (Source: Indian Journal of Orthopaedics)

Conclusion: The study results showed similar sustained satisfactory correction of flexible Lenke's type 1 scoliotic curves irrespective of the derotation maneuver used. Adequate correction, thereby restoring balance was predominantly perceived among the entire sample.

Combined ipsilateral fracture of the tibial pilon, talar body, and calcaneus: Outcome at 4 years
We present a case of a 35-year-old male with a complex foot and ankle trauma resulting in an unusual combined ipsilateral fracture of the anterolateral tibial plafond, talar body, and sustentaculum tali of the calcaneus. To the best of our knowledge, this particular combination of fractures has not yet been reported in the literature. The combination of talar body fracture with fractures of the adjacent bones was treated by a bilateral open reduction with anatomic reconstruction of the joint surfaces resulting in an excellent clinical outcome at 4-year followup.

Posterior malleolus fractures in trimalleolar ankle fractures: Malleolus versus transyndesmal fixation
Conclusions: These results demonstrate that posterior malleolar fracture fixation is closely related to successful radiological and functional outcomes after trimalleolar fractures. Transyndesmal screw fixation may not be needed in the cases where the posterior malleolar fracture fixated. For these reasons, we recommend that all posterior malleolar fractures have to be fixed regardless of size. (Source: Indian Journal of Orthopaedics)

Arthroscopic and endoscopic management of posttraumatic hindfoot stiffness
Tun Hing LuiIndian Journal of Orthopaedics 2018 52(3):304-308Ankle, hindfoot, and toe stiffness can result from hindfoot trauma. It can be due to capsular fibrosis, tendon adhesion, muscle fibrosis, or malunion. For symptomatic stiffness that is resistant to nonoperative treatment, operative treatment should be considered. It is important to tackle the sources of stiffness, and careful preoperative clinical assessment is the key for proper formulation of the surgical plan. Whenever possible, arthroscopic/endoscopic surgery is preferable to open surgery because less extensive dissection and small surgical incisions allow im...

A number of different treatment methods have been proposed including plaster immobilization, open reduction, and internal fixation or external fixation. Bone grafting is commonly used to restore bony length. The majority of the current literature suggests that the loss of length of the lateral column and articular congruency are the two criteria opting for the surgical management of these fractures. Nevertheless, the exact indications and ideal management of these fractures are not es...

The integrity of the talus is essential for the normal function of the ankle, subtalar, and midtarsal joints. The relative infrequency of this injury limits the number of studies available to guide treatment. They occur as a result of high-velocity trauma and are therefore associated with considerable soft tissue damage. Axial compression with supination or pronation ...
