Article
Phalangeal fractures are the most common hand fractures in children and the distal phalanx is the most injured. Minor fingertip injuries are very common; sometimes simple wound care might be enough but, in cases of larger skin loss, local or regional flaps could be required. Carpal fractures are rare, almost always observed in adolescents rather th...
Article
Poland Syndrome (PS) is a rare condition, with an estimated incidence of approximately 1 per 30,000 births and encompasses a wide range of severities of chest and upper arm anomalies. The etiology remains unknown, but genetic involvement is suspected. Few radiological investigations have proven useful in the study PS phenotypes and we propose a ref...
Article
The authors have developed a particular surgical technique (olecranon bone resection together with anterior elbow arthrolysis) to increase the elbow's range of motion in adolescents and young adults suffering from elbow flexion contracture in obstetrical palsy sequelae. The surgical procedure was carried out in a preliminary group of 11 patients. T...

Objective When root avulsions are detected in children suffering from obstetrical brachial plexus palsy (OBPP), neurotization procedures of different nerve trunks are commonly applied in primary brachial plexus repair, to connect distally the nerves of the upper limbs using healthy nerve structures. This article aims to outline our experience of ne...
Article
Full-text available
In the last twenty years, the incidence of paediatric long bone diaphyseal fractures has increased, owing to changes in the daily-life activities of children. The fracture pattern is different considering the child’s age, the increasing participation in sports and the large number of children involved in car accidents or who are victims of abuse....
Article
Full-text available
In children less than 6 years, the treatment of femoral shaft fracture is often non surgical, using closed reduction and casting. The literature reports many experience about this type of trauma but none of these has a long term followup. We present a retrospective study on a group of femoral diaphyseal fractures treated nonsurgically in children u...
Chapter
During the stages of child growth, the elbow is frequently a site of injury. Many peculiarities arise, depending on the age of the child and the mechanism of the injury. The most common types of skeletal lesions are supracondylar fractures of the humerus, medial epicondyle fractures, dislocation of the elbow, and radial head fractures; one lesion,...
Article
: The Poland anomaly (PA) comprises unilateral absence or hypoplasia of the pectoralis major muscle and a variable degree of ipsilateral hand and upper limb anomalies. Various hand and upper limb anomalies classifications in PA have been previously published. In this work, a new classification of hand and upper limb anomalies in PA is proposed, on...
Article
Unlabelled: Diaphyseal and metaphyseal fractures of the humerus are relatively frequent in children. The treatment is often conservative, even in the case of displaced fractures for the high rate of spontaneous recovery of these fractures. The limits of nonsurgical treatment and its applications as well as the type of surgical treatment are contro...
Article
Oxidative stress is considered to be one of the main causes of neural damage after injury. However, little is known about the changes in mRNA expression of antioxidant molecules that occur after injury and regeneration of the peripheral nerve. In the present study, the rat median nerve was transected, and transcriptional changes were studied at day...
Article
Poland anomaly (PA) is a pectoral muscle hypoplasia/aplasia variably associated with ipsilateral thoracic (TA) and/or upper limb anomalies (ULA). PA is usually sporadic and sometimes familial, making recurrence risk an issue in genetic counseling. Multidisciplinary evaluation of 240 PA patients was carried out, including physical examination of pat...
