Nine year old Jason is admitted to accident and emergency with a closed fracture of the right femur. X-rays reveal that the fracture crosses the distal Epiphyseal plate (disc). What concerns would the health care team have about the location of Jason's injury?

Hello!

It is his age which is important and if he is young then conservative treatment is sufficient without surgical correction. Check if there is any displacement of fracture or if it is a comminuted fracture. With proper alignment, proper rest and appropriate blood supply the bone will heal.

Take care!
