The goal of this retrospective and prospective medical record review is to provide data on the treatment of pediatric upper extremity injuries so as to assist in the development of standardized, evidence-based protocols for evaluation and management of these complex injuries. Through this program, researchers hope to better understand the etiology, incidence, and pathophysiology of these conditions to help develop clinical guidelines and protocols for the sequence and timing of treatments that will advance the quality of care and quality of life for children with upper extremity injuries.
Children who were seen, or are being seen, for upper body trauma by the divisions of Plastic Surgery and/or Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh are eligible for inclusion.
Males and Females: Birth to 18 years of age
