Abstract

Over a one-year period, 150 children were admitted to the Necker-Enfants malades hospital multiple trauma emergency department. These patients were victims of multiple injuries according to the WHO definition. In view of the plurality of the possible treatments for the orthopaedic lesions, the authors decided to define their management of these children. They believe that the concept of paediatric multiple trauma must include a multidicisplinary team experienced in paediatric disease, including various surgical specialists (neurosurgery, orthopaedic surgery, visceral surgery, maxillofacial surgery), an intensive care team, and a paediatric radiology team. An examination protocol was developed for the reception of these patients, and the treatment of orthopaedic lesions was defined in this study, as in any retrospective study, by trying to describe the thoughts which led to changing attitudes during this period.
