Physeal injuries and growth disturbances

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Physeal fractures are one of the unique aspects of pediatric orthopedics. These injuries are common and usually have a favorable outcome without long-term sequelae. Physeal fractures must be treated gently and expertly to maximize restoration of normal limb function and longitudinal growth. Depending on the severity and nature of physeal injury, longitudinal follow-up to identify the development of physeal growth disturbance is important.
