Paediatric Trauma

What is Paediatric Trauma?

It can happen to any child, anywhere at any time, and there is no time to travel long distances to the “best” place for care. Chances of survival are greatest if prompt, well-trained medical treatment is received within a short period of time after a severe injury. Statistics show that an injured child has a 25% better chance of surviving if they are treated at a trauma center. Caring for an injured child requires special knowledge, precise management and scrupulous attention to detail.

Children’s bones are dynamic due to the elastic property and growing ends. Due to this difference the principle of management of ‘fracture in child’, is totally different from adult. Paediatric orthopaedic surgeons carefully evaluate the fracture pattern and nature of injury and formulates the plan for management keeping in mind the growing ends and remodelling potential.
Many times the fracture unites satisfactorily, but the limb produces a secondary deformity due to growth plate injury (either during the injury or during the management process) or inappropriate treatment. Therefore the children need to be kept on regular and long term follow up and any complication/deformity during or after management must be promptly identified and treated.
The principles and guidelines in fracture management in children are different from adults and require expertise and holistic approach.
That Includes Like:
