This module covers the treatment options for:
Besides the Salter-Harris fractures, it describes in detail the Tillaux and triplane fractures and their management.
The section on triplane fractures contains a logical approach to fixation. It is accompanied by a description page with very clear illustrations of the fracture pattern in three dimensions.
Before attending a pediatric fracture course, it is recommended to read about Salter-Harris III and IV, and triplane fractures, as these frequently cause difficulty to delegates.
The pediatric material of the distal tibia and fibula, first edition, includes a detailed description of the following fracture types and their management.
Simple complete fracture:
Multifragmentary complete fracture:
Epiphysiolysis (Salter-Harris I):
Epiphysiolysis with metaphyseal wedge (Salter-Harris II):
Epiphyseal fractures (Salter-Harris III):
Epi-/metaphyseal fractures (Salter-Harris IV):
Anterolateral epiphyseal fractures (Tillaux fractures):
Complex epi-/metaphyseal fractures (triplane fractures):
Avulsion fractures of the medial malleolus:
Osteochondral fractures (intraarticular flake):
Epiphysiolysis (Salter-Harris I and II):
The following additional material is available for this module.
