What are Salter Harris fractures?

  • Salter Harris fracture is a pediatric fracture involving the growth plate.

  • Most commonly involve ankle and wrist


Physical exam findings l.jpg

Physical exam findings

  • Edema

  • Limited range of motion in joint

  • Point tenderness over the growth plate


Radiographs l.jpg

Radiographs

  • Need AP and lateral that include the joints proximal and distal to point of injury

  • Comparison study of contra lateral limb


Anatomy l.jpg

Anatomy

  • Cartilaginous growth plate separates the epiphysis and metaphysis

Epiphysis

Metaphysis


Type i l.jpg

Type I

  • Widening of the growth plate

  • “Slipped epiphysis”


Type ii l.jpg

Type II

  • Fracture of metaphysis

  • “Above the growth plate”


Type iii l.jpg

Type III

  • Fracture of the epiphysis

  • “Lower than the growth plate”


Type iv l.jpg

Type IV

  • Fracture of the metaphysis and epiphysis that communicate “Through the growth plate”


Type v l.jpg

Type V

  • Impaction of epiphysis into the diaphysis

  • “Raised epiphysis”
