Pain out of proportion and pain with passive stretching of muscle.


If treatment is delayed surgical correction is the only choice

Management: • non operative: remove constructive dressings( casts, splints) and elevate the limb at the level of the heart . • Operative : urgent fascitomy, 48-72h post-op wound closure with or without necrotic tissue debridement .

Treatment : serial casting

Talipes equinovarus ( Club foot )

Flection and inversion of the foot

Difinition : avascular necrosis of femoral head in children

Look for Source of Bleeding

Jaw Thrust And Chin Lift

CT scan , MRI , Arthrography , Arthrocentesis , Arthroscopy , and bone scan can be used in some cases


Pavlik harness

Hip spica cast

Open reduction

Developmental dysplasia (dislocation) of the hip (DDH)

Physical examination

Barlow's test

Ortaloni's test




Pediatric Orthopaedics

Hip & foot pathology

Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE), Difinition : seperation of the epiphysis From the head of the femur, Investigation : x-ray, Treatment : stabilize with nail

Septic hip, Sign & symp : cry , poor feeding , fever, inability to move the hip, Common bacteria : staph aureus, Investigation : CBC , blood culture , x-ray , aspiration, Treatment : open the joint , irregation and antibiotic

Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease (LCPD), Four Stages, 1-Femoral head becomes more dense with possible fracture of supporting bone, 2-Fragmentation and reabsorption of bone, 3- Reossification when new bone has regrown, 4-Healing, when new bone reshapes., Signs & symp : hip pain, Investigations : x-ray


Orthopaedic Oncology


primary tumors, Posterior Cruciate Ligament, most of them are benign, must be managed only by an oncologist orthopedic

secondary (Metastatic) tumors, the majority of bone tumors, can be managed by any orthopedic doctor

Important 7 quistions in x-ray

How to comment, Take a history & Physical Ex, Personal data, The area and view, Follow cortical outline, description, Dislocation for joint, Angulation, Shortening


Primary Survey, A,B,C,D,E, A=Airway & Cervical Spine Protection, Displacement for bone, B=Breathing, intubate if GCS <= 8, C=Circulation, D=Disability, by Glasgow Coma Scale, Eye Response, 1: no response, 2: open in response to pain, 3: open in response to command, 4: open spontaneously, Resuscitation, Verbal Response, 1: no response, 2: incomprehensible sound, 3: with incompatible words, 4: confusion, 5: oriented, Motor Response, 1: no response, 2: extention to pain, 3: flextion to pain, 4: withwrawal from pain, 5: localize to pain, 6: respond to command

Resuscitation, Two peripheral large bore IVs, Two liters of Ringers Lactate, Monitor Blood pressure Urinary output Base deficit Initial Hematocrit/Hemoglobin -unreliable, If no response then severe hemorrhage has occurred Immediate blood is needed, Type specific, the same blood group (A+ , B- , O-, etc) minor groups are not tested here, cross match, no reaction occurred bet. donor & recipient blood in the lap.

Secondary Survey, after pt stablization, look for Dx

Tertiary Survey, in 24 hr after stablization, look for missing abnormality
