Radiographic evidence to help predict the mechanism of injury of pediatric spiral fractures in nonaccidental injury.
BACKGROUND: Spiral fractures are one of the most common fractures seen in nonaccidental injury. With radiographic evidence for the mechanism of injury, the physician is more capable of identifying any inconsistencies in the history. OBJECTIVES: To detail and differentiate the fracture patterns created by rotation forces in different directions. To determine the reliability of that recognition method applied to standard radiographs. METHODS: Twenty rabbit femurs were fractured using a torque ...Expand abstract
