The article discusses the need for orthopaedists to have working knowledge of pediatric fracture care to provide medical assistance during emergency trauma call. Supracondylar humeral fractures are most common in the first decade of life. A fall on an outstretched arm can result in a transphyseal elbow fracture. Varus stress to an extended elbow with the forearm in supination can result in fractures of the lateral condyle.
