Description
Hand: Pediatric upper extremity surgeons manage a wide variety of conditions, including congenital, neuromuscular, and traumatic disorders.  Clinical and diagnostic work-up, surgical indications, and treatment approach are often controversial. This session will include 6 high-quality abstract presentations, a panel discussion of challenging cases, and presentation on pediatric upper extremity surgery in low-resource countries. Foot: The Pediatric and Adolescent Foot Imaging discussion and case presentations will focus on new MRI techniques for foot disease and deformity, weight bearing CT indications and benefits, and ultrasound uses. Then we will discuss minimally invasive techniques for pediatric and adolescent forefoot and hindfoot reconstruction including bunion repair and calcaneal osteotomy.
Time
7:50 AM - 12:00 PM
7:50 AM
This session will focus on how to approach less common hip conditions.  Expert hip surgeons will discuss their approach to managing complex, uncommon hip problems.
Time
7:50 AM - 12:00 PM
7:50 AM
Neuromuscular: This session will be a mixture of scientific presentations and discussion on the orthopaedic care of patients with neuromuscular disorders.  A variety of topics will be presented, including the optimization of patients for surgical intervention, approaches to ambulatory patients with gait impairment, orthopaedic care in patients with Spina Muscular Atrophy, and a journal club of influential publications from the preceding year. Lower extremity: Lower extremity topic is limb length discrepancy with presentations to highlight case examples, prediction methods, and a debate centered on opposing treatment methods.  Presenters will review the options for epiphyseodesis versus limb lengthening including counseling of families, various techniques, results/complications and pearls and pitfalls.  The didactic concludes with a discussion on the "cutoff" for limb lengthening considering evolving technology.
Time
7:50 AM - 12:00 PM
7:50 AM
In 2020 we faced new challenges in clinical care and education.  Our session will focus on contemporary issues of 2021 facing pediatric spine surgeons including the COVID pandemic, increasing use of telehealth, and racial disparities in pediatric spine care.   In addition, we will have a session on indications and techniques to optimize care for patients with neuromuscular scoliosis.  Many options exist for treatment, and it is not always clear which patients benefit from operative intervention.  This session will highlight the controversies that frequently arise during the treatment of these patients and highlight the benefits of having multiple tools in your toolbox when approaching these cases.   Finally, we also will have a duel on the current state of growth modulation in the treatment of scoliosis.  Do we really know if this is better than a fusion?  Our experts will slug it out!
Time
7:50 AM - 12:00 PM
7:50 AM
Ortho-Biologics in Youth Sports: Waste of Money or Promising Treatment Option This session aims to provide a review of the various trending ortho-biologic options in sports medicine including PRP, BMAC, stem cells, etc and current evidence on their applicability to youth sports medicine pathologies. A controversial, yet highly lucrative part of adult sports medicine practices, utilization of biologics in youth sports medicine has been limited. Understanding of the basic science behind their development and analysis of high level evidence in adult populations will improve application algorithms in youth sports medicine.
Time
7:50 AM - 12:00 PM
7:50 AM
This session will be a mixture of scientific papers, debate and discussion of topics of interest in the area of pediatric orthopaedic trauma.  The debates and discussions will focus on controversial aspects of the treatment of common injuries in children.  During the first session, we will discuss the management of femur fractures in pre-school age children, the management of type 1 open fractures, and the trend towards the use of rigid fixation for adolescent tibial shaft fractures.  In the second session, our panelists will review current concepts on the management of pelvic, forearm and clavicle fractures.
