Fractures in Boys with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and their Relationship to Age

Joseph Shuko , Di Marco Marina , Horrocks Iain , Ahmed S Faisal , Wong S C

Objective and hypotheses: A retrospective review of bone morbidity in a contemporary cohort of boys with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) managed in a Scottish tertiary neuromuscular centre.Method: Clinical details and results of bone surveillance were obtained in 47 boys, aged 9 years (2–16). DXA bone mineral content (BMC) at total body (TB) and lumbar spine (LS) were adjusted for bone area. Fractures were classified based on radiological confirma...

Bone Biochemistry in Children with Fractures Presenting with Suspected Non-accidental Injury

Forbes Owen , McNeilly Jane , McDevitt Helen , Houston James , Ahmed S. Faisal , Mason Avril

Introduction: Fractures have been recorded in up to one third of children who have suffered from physical abuse. The British Paediatric and Adolescent Bone Group (BPABG) position statement on vitamin D states that the level of 25 hydroxyvitamin D is not relevant to causation of fractures unless there is radiological or biochemical evidence of rickets. Clinicians are often asked in the court setting about the relevance of abnormal serum investigations in children who have fract...

A Systematic Review of Reported Outcomes for Hypospadias

Leunbach Tina Lund , O'Toole Stuart , Springer Alexander , Williamson Paula , Ahmed S Faisal

Introduction: The outcome of hypospadias is considered to be primarily dependent on the underlying aetiology, its surgical management and the duration of follow-up. However, currently, there is little consensus on what set of parameters are essential and clinically feasible for assessment of outcome.Aim: To facilitate the development of a core outcome set for hypospadias by assessment of the range of outcomes reported in boys undergoing surgery.<p cl...
