Special Issue "Research in Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgery"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (10 November 2023) | Viewed by 5708
Interests: paediatric orthopaedics; soft tissue research (clubfoot, Dupuytren, scars); motion analysis; musculoskeletal ultrasound
Paediatric orthopaedics has seen remarkable advancement in knowledge in recent decades, which has been further coupled with the considerable worldwide enthusiasm of researchers in this medical field. This research has resulted in new information about the aetiology, progression, diagnostics, and therapy of many paediatric musculoskeletal disorders.
Novel technical options and solutions have allowed us to gain knowledge about ultrastructural tissue composition in various paediatric deformities, such as clubfoot, and brought us one step closer to discovering the origin of these diseases. These findings will hopefully enable us to base new therapeutic approaches on cellular and tissue engineering in the future.
Three-dimensional printing and computer navigation allow us to perform surgical procedures more efficiently through minimally invasive approaches, and thus with lower tissue damage. The development of techniques of motion analysis has enabled us to describe the changes in movement patterns after various surgical procedures.
We welcome reviews and original papers based on research in paediatric orthopaedics.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Children is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
