traction (traction apophysitis) on the anterior portion of the developing ossification center leads to multiple subacute microavulsion fractures and/or tendinous inflammation, resulting in a benign, self-limited disturbance manifested as pain, swelling, and tenderness. The most common long-term ramifications of OSD are pain on kneeling as an adult and the cosmesis of a bony prominence on the anterior knee. Less common complications are the persistence of a painful ossicle requiring surgical excision (...) persist for 2-3 years until the tibial growth plate closes.

however both groups reported symptom relief with no adverse outcomes. [ ] Long-term immobilization is typically contraindicated, because it may result in increased knee stiffness in mild cases, thus predisposing the athlete to additional sports-related injuries. However, if a patient is noncompliant, the clinician may recommend immobilization in a knee brace for a minimum of 6 weeks. The brace should be removed daily, but only for stretching and strengthening exercises. Inform the patient to avoid (...) of the extensor mechanism. Open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) usually is recommended, depending on the size and displacement of the fragment as well as the phase of apophyseal closure. Indications for surgery Occasionally, adults have a large ossicle and an overlying bursa, which may cause pain with kneeling. If so, treatment consists of excision of the bursa, ossicle, and any prominence. [ ] Contraindications for surgery The real question is whether or not surgery is ever indicated in the growing

Avulsion fracture of the anterior superior iliac spine: misdiagnosis of a bone tumour Avulsion fractures of the anterior superior iliac spine are rare. This injury is usually seen in adolescents, as an avulsion fracture of the apophyses, a result of sudden vigorous contraction or repetitive contraction of the sartorius and tensor fasciae latae muscles. Treatment for this injury is usually conservative; however, surgical management has been reported in those with significant displacement. We
Pediatric running injuries. As more children have become involved in athletic activities and running, there has been a significant increase in overuse injuries. The young athlete with open growth plates is vulnerable to unique overuse injuries involving the apophyses, articular cartilage, and growth plate. The physician caring for these young athletes needs to be aware of these conditions to diagnose and treat them appropriately. Physicians should also be aware of the risk of overtraining (...) and overuse injury in athletes participating in year-round sports and competition. Current guidelines for overuse injury prevention in young athletes are primarily based on consensus and expert opinion. Further research is needed to provide evidence-based guidelines for overuse injury prevention in young athletes and runners.Copyright 2010 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

CT has the advantage of being able to be manipulated to make 3D reconstructions.

Technetium bone scan identifies areas of increased osteoblastic activity and can help localise infection and subtle areas of bone injury such as early
. , . Achilles tendonitis is an acute condition and painful because of acute minor tears and associated inflammatory change. Achilles tendinosis is thought to be a chronic process which weakens the tendon and predisposes to tendon rupture.

Assessment Always consider trauma in an acute presentation: Talar injuries often follow falls on to the feet or after violent dorsiflexion of the ankle. Calcaneal fractures usually follow a fall from height on to the heel. Fractures are often bilateral. There is swelling, bruising and tenderness over the calcaneum. There may be associated injuries to the knees, hips, pelvis, lumbar spine or cervical spine. Talar and calcaneal fractures should be referred for urgent orthopaedic assessment. Patients
problem. For some children, sport is more than just some fun and they train very hard and long to a high standard. This is particularly true of swimming, gymnastics and dancing. Children are still growing and the epiphyses of their bones have not yet fused. This makes them very vulnerable to overuse injury [ ] . Injuries of the apophyses may also occur, particularly avulsion [ ] . Weight training before puberty should be with the utmost caution, if at all. Beware of the coach who is pushing the child (...)

Pediatric athlete hip disorders. Injuries of the hip and pelvis in pediatric athletes are receiving increased attention. The majority of injuries are soft tissue injuries or apophysealinjuries that heal with nonoperative supportive treatment. Unique injury patterns can be seen in patients who have underlying pediatric hip disorders such as slipped capital femoral epiphysis, and Legg-Perthes disease. With the advent of hip arthroscopy and the development of more advanced imaging of the hip (...) through MR arthrography, internal derangements of the hip such as labral tears, loose bodies, and chondral injuries are being diagnosed and treated with increased frequency. This article reviews the more common injuries of the hip and pelvis in pediatric athletes.
Multiple osteochondroses and avulsion fracture of anterior superior iliac spine in a soccer player. Apophysitis describes a chronic traction injury at the insertion site of a tendon. There is a gradual onset of pain with no clear history of injury. Without adequate preventive methods, an avulsion fracture may result. The case is here reported of an apophyseal avulsion fracture of the anterior superior iliac spine in an adolescent caused by playing football before the end of treatment (...) for apophysitis. An open reduction and internal fixation was performed followed by a rehabilitation programme. No complications occurred, and the patient had returned to his previous level of sporting activity after six weeks.
Sports-related acute and chronic avulsion injuries in children and adolescents with special emphasis on tennis. Acute and chronic sports-related muscle and tendon injuries are not infrequent in youngsters. In particular, the physis is prone to trauma as it constitutes the weakest part of the immature skeleton. The type of sports activity determines the location of the lesion. Most commonly, apophyses of the hip and pelvis are subject to avulsion. The purpose of this paper is to give a short (...) overview of the pathogenesis, location, prevalence and imaging characteristics of acute and chronic avulsion injuries in the immature skeleton, with special emphasis on tennis-related injuries. Tennis-related injuries particularly involve apophyses of the ischial tuberosity, the anterior inferior or superior iliac spine and the iliac crest.
Sports injuries in adolescents' ball games: soccer, handball and basketball. In a prospective study of 302 adolescent players in three ball games (soccer, handball and basketball), 119 incurred injuries. The injury incidence (number of injuries per 1000 playing hours) was 5.6 in soccer, 4.1 in handball and 3.0 in basketball. Ankle sprains accounted for 25 per cent of the injuries, finger sprains 32 per cent, strains in the thigh and leg 10 per cent, and tendinitis/apophysitis 12 per cent (...) . The most serious injuries were four fractures, one anterior cruciate ligament rupture, and two meniscus lesions. The most serious injuries, with the longest rehabilitation period, occurred in soccer. In soccer, many injuries occurred during tackling and contact with an opposing player, while the injuries in handball and basketball were often caused by ball contact and running.
