    Foot and ankle injuries due to motor vehicle accidents (MVAs) present unique challenges to the astute foot and ankle physician. Even more challenging than the pathology, however, is ability to return to pre-injury level. Published medical literature provides strong evidence for risk of post-traumatic arthritis after a heel bone (calcaneus) fracture - this post-MVA condition can manifest as residual deformity and resulting arthritis, thus precluding the ability to rapidly return to pre-accident levels. Hence it is imperative that an erudite foot and ankle clinician ascertain the appropriate treatment and long-term prognosis of foot and ankle injuries due to MVAs.

    Torsional problems of the femur have been traditionally treated by a proximal osteotomy with internal fixation. We elected to perform femoral derotational osteotomies distally. Between September 1994 and April 2001, supracondylar osteotomies were performed on 38 femora in 21 children with torsional and angular deformities. The average age was 9 years (range 5-15 years). Twenty-three femora had excessive anteversion and fifteen, retroversion. All osteotomies were maintained by the small AO external fixator.

    Patients with fixed equinus and associated angular and rotational deformities, who have had multiple previous surgeries, present a significant challenge to the orthopaedic surgeon. We chose to correct these deformities with supramalleolar extension wedge osteotomies in 21 feet in 13 patients between 1991 and 2002. The median age at presentation was 11 years (range: 2-17 years). An average correction of 20" of extension (range: 10-33") was required to achieve a plantigrade foot. Fourteen of 20 feet (70%) remained plantigrade at a mean follow-up of 6 years.

    Traditional methods of correcting malunited distal humeral fractures in children involve complex wedge osteotomies held with pins or internal fixation devices.
