Children and adolescents present a unique challenge in trauma care because they are so different from adults. The risks to injured children and adolescents can be significantly reduced with the provision of appropriate care.
The new femoral shaft module comprises treatments depending on fracture type and patient age: casting, elastic stable intramedullary nailing, lockedintramedullary nailing, external fixation, and plating.
In the distal femur module,the management of all relevant metaphyseal and epiphyseal fracture types is covered with procedures for immobilization and fixation with K-wires, screws, and/or plates.
