The WHO recommends the enhancement of both the quality and quantity of data on morbidity and outcomes of children’s injuries. This will facilitate targeted investment in injury prevention. Causes of injuries in infants, children and teenagers have a broad spectrum and and variety of causes, as sometimes the anatomical regions of interest vary between different age groups. Further, children and teenagers are often curious and tend to be more available to participate in sports trends with kick-scooters, skateboarding, snowboarding, on trampolines, etc. Therefore, the identification of injury patterns will always be of great intrest, as will their prevention and therapy. In the case of growing injuries, it is important to minimize possible long-term effects. Depending on the child’s age, the potential of spontaneous correction of fractures is different. This potential and the prognosis is not only age-related but more linked to the overall biological maturity of the patient. Therefore, it would be of interest if changes in fracture types and patterns have occurred among children and teenagers.
Further, infrequent injuries are associated with diminished experience. As such, in the attempt to develop possible recommendations it is important to re-evaluate and update old paradigms. Concluding, this should further lead to an update to the common treatment guidelines and an improvement in therapies for the paediatric population across different age groups.
