Title Pediatric orthopedic deformities. Volume 1, Pathobiology and treatment of dysplasias, physeal fractures, length discrepancies, and epiphyseal and joint disorders / Frederic Shapiro
Published Cham : Springer, [2015]


Description 1 online resource (xx, 789 pages) : illustrations (some color)
Contents Developmental Bone Biology -- Overview of Deformities -- Skeletal Dysplasias -- Bone and Joint Deformity in Metabolic, Inflammatory, Neoplastic, Infectious and Hematologic Disorders -- Epiphyseal Growth Plate Fracture-Separations -- Lower Extremity Length Discrepancies
Summary Developmental biology of normal bone and cartilage including histogenesis, molecular/gene, and biomechanical aspects is updated and expanded. The book outlines the biology of: bone repair with differing mechanical environments; cartilage repair at articular and physeal sites; and distraction osteogenesis. The generously illustrated text provides an in-depth presentation of the interplay between normal developmental biology, abnormal pathologic states and the influence of operative and non-operative orthopedic interventions on childhood orthopedic deformity. Thirty-four principles underlying the development, progression and management of skeletal deformity in the growing child are defined. Orthopedic management including surgical treatment is discussed for: skeletal dysplasias; epiphyseal growth plate fracture-separations; lower extremity length discrepancies; and deformities of joints and epiphyses due to metabolic, inflammatory, infectious, hematologic, and neoplastic disorders. Treatments are related to extent of deformity, remodeling post-surgery, and possible recurrence. This 2nd edition of Pediatric Orthopedic Deformities has been expanded to cover more regions and disorders and is being presented in 3 volumes
