Electronic Consultation Systems: Impact on Pediatric Orthopaedic Care
This cross-sectional study demonstrates the effective and timely use of eConsult in pediatric orthopaedic surgery. It also shows a significant reduction in the number of in-person consultations required and demonstrates a high satisfaction rate by PCPs using the service.
Bilateral Discoid Medial Menisci: A Case Report and Review of the Literature
Bilateral discoid medial menisci are exceptionally rare and of uncertain pathoetiology. We report on a case in an active adolescent woman who presented with bilateral medial knee joint line pain.
Management and Outcomes of Clinical Scaphoid Fractures in Children
Management of clinical scaphoid fractures at our institution was relatively uniform: nearly all patients were immobilized and less than 20% received advanced imaging. Our findings suggest a low but non-zero occult scaphoid fracture rate, discordance in radiologic interpretation, and lack of advanced imaging, providing an avenue for future prospective studies.
