Case report of LCP pediatric hip osteosynthesis of a proximal femoral fracture in a child with marble bone disease.

Georgiev H, Alexiev VA - Pan Afr Med J (2013)

Bottom Line: We performed open fracture reduction with stable 120° LCP (Locking Compression Plate) Pediatric hip osteosynthesis.Fracture consolidation and ability to walk without crutches was achieved in a half a year.The presented case is the first for Bulgaria.

ABSTRACT
We present a case report demonstrating the experience of the department of pediatric orthopaedics of the University Orthopedic Hospital at Sofia Medical University in the treatment of an intertrochanteric proximal femoral fracture in a child with osteopetrosis. We performed open fracture reduction with stable 120° LCP (Locking Compression Plate) Pediatric hip osteosynthesis. Fracture consolidation and ability to walk without crutches was achieved in a half a year. The presented case is the first for Bulgaria. There are still no publications in the world literature on application of such osteosynthesis in marble bone disease.

Figure 0004: Hip range of active movements on 1 year postoperatively

Mentions: On the X-rays in March 2013 (1 year postoperatively) we see consolidated fracture with a normal femoral neck-shaft angle. Lower leg length discrepancy is below 0.5 cm (Figure 3). Range of motion in the operated hip joint is: active flexion — 90°, extension — 5°, abduction — 30° (Figure 4). The patient is painless and her gait substantially improved. The child returned to her specialized for blind school for the new school year.
