The article presents information on findings related to pediatric orthopedics. It was found in a study that a carefully performed shelf procedure that does not damage the lateral growth center can stimulate acetabular depth development. A study of skeletally immature girls found that a Risser sign of 0 and an open tricartilage acetabular cartilage correlated with peak height velocity. Another study found that the use of titanium elastic nails is effective in the treatment of tibial fractures.
