Bringing together the many considerations and complexities surrounding the management pediatric femur fractures, this up-to-date, comprehensive book discusses all aspects of these common but challenging injuries, where the treatment strategies are rapidly changing and which have the potential for complications and less than ideal outcomes. Because there may be multiple acceptable treatment approaches to a given fracture, we sought to review the full spectrum of therapeutic modalities. The entirety of the pediatric femur is considered, including femoral head and neck fractures, diaphyseal, physeal and epiphyseal fractures, and intra-articular fractures of the distal femur. Opening with chapters on development and anatomy as well as radiological evaluation, each fracture type-specific chapter discusses the indications and contra-indications, advantages and disadvantages, technical principles and published outcomes associated with each of the accepted techniques, from casting and traction to external and internal fixation. Concluding chapters discuss pathological fractures and the evaluation and management of complications. By channeling the expertise of a broad and accomplished group of authors with extensive experience in both researching and treating pediatric femur fractures, Pediatric Femur Fractures provides caregivers with the most complete and reliable resource when faced with any of the many types of this challenging injury.
