Pediatric Femur Fractures: A Practical Guide to Evaluation and Management


Bringing together the many considerations and complexities surrounding the management pediatric femur fractures, this up-to-date, comprehensive book discusses all aspects of these common but challenging injuries, where the treatment strategies are rapidly changing and which have the potential for complications and less than ideal outcomes. Because there may be multiple acceptable treatment approaches to a given fracture, we sought to review the full spectrum of therapeutic modalities. The entirety of the pediatric femur is considered, including femoral head and neck fractures, diaphyseal, physeal and epiphyseal fractures, and intra-articular fractures of the distal femur. Opening with chapters on development and anatomy as well as radiological evaluation, each fracture type-specific chapter discusses the indications and contra-indications, advantages and disadvantages, technical principles and published outcomes associated with each of the accepted techniques, from casting and traction to external and internal fixation. Concluding chapters discuss pathological fractures and the evaluation and management of complications. By channeling the expertise of a broad and accomplished group of authors with extensive experience in both researching and treating pediatric femur fractures, Pediatric Femur Fractures provides caregivers with the most complete and reliable resource when faced with any of the many types of this challenging injury.

Cerebral Visual Impairment in Children: Visuoperceptive and Visuocognitive Disorders


By (author): Josef Zihl, Gordon N. Dutton

Cerebral visual disorders have far-reaching consequences for child development. These have profound adverse effects on children’s education and success in school and also in later life, but, unfortunately, cerebral visual disorders often remain undiagnosed and untreated in the pediatric population. This book provides a state-of-the-art account of what is known about the development and disorders of visual perception in children. It covers the development and disorders of visual perception in children, their assessment, early intervention and management in an interdisciplinary context, both from a scientific as well as clinical perspective. Case studies illustrate the recommended assessment and rehabilitation procedures; synopses, boxes and check-lists complement the presentation of our recommendations for clinical practice.

Children with Specific Language Impairment (Language, Speech, and Communication)


By (author): Laurence B. Leonard

The landmark reference in the field, completely updated: a comprehensive treatment of a disorder that is more prevalent than autism.

Children with specific language impairment (SLI) show a significant deficit in spoken language that cannot be attributed to neurological damage, hearing impairment, or intellectual disability. More prevalent than autism and at least as prevalent as dyslexia, SLI affects approximately seven percent of all children; it is longstanding, with adverse effects on academic, social, and (eventually) economic standing. The first edition of this work established Children with Specific Language Impairment as the landmark reference on this condition, considering not only the disorder’s history, possible origins, and treatment but also what SLI might tell us about language organization and development in general. This second edition offers a complete update of the earlier volume. Much of the second edition is completely new, reflecting findings and interpretations based on the hundreds of studies that have appeared since the publication of the first edition in 1997. Topics include linguistic details (descriptive and theoretical), word and sentence processing findings, genetics, neurobiology, treatment, and comparisons to such conditions as autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, and dyslexia. The book covers SLI in children who speak a wide range of languages, and, although the emphasis is on children, it also includes studies of adults who were diagnosed with SLI as children or are the parents of children with SLI. Written by a leading scholar in the field, Children with Specific Language Impairment offers the most comprehensive, balanced, and unified treatment of SLI available.
