Difficult dislocated distal physeal femur fracture in a 13-year-old girl

Ugeskr Læger 2019;181:V12180837

In this case report, a 13-year-old girl with a distal Salter-Harris type II physeal fracture was treated by open reduction and internal fixation. She had to undergo a CT scan to establish the extent of injury prior to treatment. Distal physeal fractures of the femur are rare fractures, which often present various difficulties in the post-operative regimen. The classification and dislocation of the fracture have therapeutical and prognostic values in terms of treatment planning and growth disturbances. Follow-up after these fractures is recommended in order to detect malunion or anisomelia.
