    Ok where are the Doctors?

    Advertisements



    If you have a kid crying like crazy because she broke her leg , and you notice that is located in growth plate

    1-What would you worry about first?
    2- explain to me a little about growth plate related stuff,( I'm getting old and forgot all that stuff)
    3-What bacteria might give you an infection?
    4- What type of necrosis she might get?

    Ok lets start with this, if you only know the answer of one thats ok, you can post about that question.

    1. Controlling the pain, of course, but since you mention the growth plate, I would also consider moving fast to fix the fracture.
    2. Growth plate fractures occur in kids, and if not reset promptly, can lead to growth deformation of the bones eventually.
    3. Staph aureus?
    4. Necrosis...um, coagulative?
    I used to pray and pray for a bike and never got one. Later I learned that God doesn't work that way... so I went out and stole a bike and asked God for forgiveness.

    IMG Survivor, were my answers right or wrong? Re: fat necrosis, off the top of my head I can tell you that it is seen with pancreatitis, I forget which others. Is it bone injury as well? I need to go back and review gen path

    Yes you are correct, I'm confusing it with fat embolus of long bones.

    Yes MDiva you are correct.

    But I was thinking that maybe the growing part would be more of a worrisom for the MD, and not the pain, acourse he will deal with that first. but not worry first.

    Is like a dude with MI, acourse you are consern for his pain but thats not the main thing you are concern with right?

    Lets talk about this so we all learn, if any other kind soul want to give theire 2 cents, even supermods,mods.

    This is a commom orthopedic questions in CK..

    what you need to think first is the epiphyses and growth plate is in one piece or the fracture does cross it and also think about joint involvement ..
    if they are in one piece...treatment is by closed reduction...if they are 2 pieces of growth plate by the fracture...unless they are very precisely aligned...growth will be disturbed...treatment is open reduction and internal fixation..
    for the questions about "necrosis"....i will think avascular necrosis first...because it is common vascular and nerve injuries in young child...
