Birth-related fractures of long bones.

OBJECTIVE: Birth-related fractures of the long bones are not rare. METHODS: This study presents a retrospective analysis of birth-related fractures of long bones seen at the King Fahd Hospital of the University, Al-Khobar, Saudi Arabia. RESULTS: There were 21 fractures (clavicle 11, femur 6, humerus 3 and radius 1) during the 10-year period, with an overall incidence of 0.67 per 1000 live births. Neonates with fractures had higher birth-weight (p<0.001) as compared to the control group and other parameters like gestational age and mode of delivery were not significant. CONCLUSION: It is recommended that neonates with fractures must have quicker appointments in the outpatient clinics to prevent deformities and secondly those with fracture clavicles should be thoroughly evaluated to rule out damage to brachial plexas as well.[1]
