Descriptif détaillé : pediatric fractures dislocations and sequelae an issue of hand clinics, volume 22-1
Treating broken bones in children is different than treating bone in adults. Children’s periosteum has a rich blood supply which speeds up the healing process and may prevent residual healing deformity. On the other hand, their growth plate is an area to be watched carefully since it is sensitive to trauma.
This issue of Hand Clinics features chapters on how to treat fractures of the scaphoid, elbow, wrist, fingers and thumb, treating deformities, palsies and more.
