Target Audience

DMU faculty, staff, students, residents, and the medical community.


  • Recognize the importance of rapid response in the trauma setting.
  • Discuss the importance of a multi-team approach to trauma.
  • Describe the long-term ramifications of severe lower extremity injuries.

Educational Need

Treating severe lower extremity injuries in children requires a rapid response with a multidisciplinary approach and will often utilize a combination of pediatric and adult techniques. Many pediatric foot and ankle injuries overlap with their adult counterparts. However, distinct attributes of the pediatric skeleton, especially in the presence of growth plates, can translate into injury patterns and complications that differ from those of adults. Providers must be competent in these distinctions to ensure their patients' best possible outcome and long-term functionality. This session will discuss the unique anatomy of the pediatric foot and ankle and best-practice guidelines for evaluating and treating traumatic injuries in the young population.

    Session proposals are now being accepted for the DMU Grand Rounds series! Have you encountered an interesting clinical case, seen a patient with a unique history, condition, and/or treatment protocol, or been involved with interprofessional management that improves patient care and treatment outcomes? If so, you're invited to help build the series by submitting a session proposal! In addition to the rare and unique, cases of more common conditions are also acceptable, and proposals from external members of the broader healthcare community are welcomed and encouraged.
