Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to extend our deepest invitation to you for a Special Issue titled "Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery: Clinical Diagnosis, Treatment, and Management". This esteemed edition aims to explore the latest advancements and best practices in the field of pediatric orthopedic surgery.

With a focus on clinical diagnosis, treatment and management, this Special Issue seeks to enhance our understanding of the unique challenges and innovative solutions in pediatric orthopedics. Moreover, over the years, we have seen developments within all aspects of orthopedic surgery in children, using both surgical and non-surgical methods to correct and treat disease.

We invite researchers and experts from diverse backgrounds to contribute their original research, insightful reviews and thought-provoking perspectives.

By assembling a comprehensive collection of articles, we aspire to promote collaboration, disseminate knowledge and foster advancements in the field of pediatric orthopedic surgery.

Your expertise and contribution in this specialized field would be greatly valued and appreciated. We look forward to your active involvement in shaping this Special Issue and contributing to the broader scientific community.

Dr. Angelo Gabriele Aulisa
Guest Editor

Supracondylar fractures of the humerus are frequent paediatric injuries. The aims of this study were to evaluate the applicability and reproducibility of the Gartland and Wilkins classification, the Baumann angle (BA) and the Anterior Humeral Line (AHL). This retrospective monocentric observational study was conducted on 217 patients. Four observers assessed the pre-operative radiographs by applying the Gartland and Wilkins classification and the post-operative X-rays by measuring the BA and AHL. The kappa coefficient (K) and the Cohen’s kappa were used for the reliability of the Gartland classification; the Intraclass Correlation Coefficient (ICC) for that of the BA. The AHL was evaluated in a double manner by using first the K and the Cohen’s kappa and then the ICC. A total of 186 patients were eligible. Inter-observer reliability for the Gartland classification was K = 0.73–0.61 for type III, 0.65–0.61 for type Ia and 0.43–0.26 for type IIb. The Baumann angle mean value in the first data collection was 73.5 ± 6.85 (inter-observer ICC 0.74) and 72.9 ± 6.83 (inter-observer ICC 0.77) for the second data collection; AHL: inter-observer ICC 0.87 for the first evaluation and 0.80 for the second one. Gartland’s classification modified by Wilkins has a high degree of reliability. BA and AHL appear reproducible and reliable. Full article

Background: An algorithm for managing open fractures in children is still being debated; the present study suggests an evidence-based way to manage these patients in the emergency department. Methods: The literature on “Open fractures in children” was carefully analyzed using keywords. The primary sources were The Cochrane Library, PubMed, and Researchgate. Conclusion: We proposed an evidence-based algorithm for managing open fractures in children to standardize clinical practice and improve the care of these patients. Full article
