Fractures and infections of the bone are among most serious injuries to children

LAS VEGAS, Feb. 25 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Severe musculoskeletal conditions in children include bone and joint infections, a hip problem known as slipped epiphysis, and elbow fractures. These can lead to long-term health problems and other complications if children are not treated properly and in a timely manner, according to information released today at the 2009 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) (http://www.aaos.org/).

"We see a lot more children with infections of the joints, bones and particularly the soft tissue around the bone, that are caused by bacteria which is resistant to many antibiotics," explains Dr. Martin Herman, M.D., pediatric orthopaedic surgeon at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children in Philadelphia and associate professor of orthopaedic surgery at Drexel University College of Medicine.

The infections usually result from bacteria in the bloodstream, which settle into the child's bone or joint and within days can lead to:

  • A high fever
  • Severe swelling
  • Redness and a great deal of pain

If the infection is not diagnosed and treated early, it can cause permanent damage. "Parents should not ignore an area of infection that looks like it is spreading quickly," noted Dr. Herman, "or one that is associated with a fever or swelling."

Another serious pediatric orthopaedic condition that needs to be on a parent's radar is slipped capital femoral epiphysis (http://orthoinfo.aaos.org/topic.cfm?topic=A000
