The following is true about the Salter-Harris classification of paediatric fractures:
Type I has a good prognosis. Type I Salter-Harris fractures generally have a good prognosis and can be thought of as ‘slipped’ epiphyses. There are five types, Type V being a crush injury of the growth plate. Type II involves the metaphysis, Type III the epiphysis, and Type IV both the metaphysis and epiphysis.
The following are associated with hypospadias except:
The following is true regarding cleft palate surgery:
Intravelar veloplasty involves repair of the nasal mucosa. The Veau-KilnerWardill technique is a push-back technique, the von Langenbeck technique is a bepidicled technique and Furlow described the doubleopposing Z-plasty.
Prominent ear correction:
Using the Mustardé and Chongchet (anterior scoring) techniques were both described in 1963 in the British Journal of Plastic Surgery. It is best undertaken after age 5 when the ear has achieved 80% of its adult size. To avoid an ‘overcorrected’ look the antihelix should not be more prominent than the helix. Otoplasty is a relatively simple operation in experienced hands, and if parents and child are keen for surgery, this is entirely reasonable.
