Abstract

BACKGROUND: To our knowledge, there are no comprehensive clinical studies of implant-related fractures in children. Our goal was to identify the incidence, skeletal location, and associated diagnoses of implant-related fractures. METHODS: We reviewed our institutional database to identify cases of implant insertion (7584 cases) in patients less than 18 years old from January 1, 1995 through December 31, 2009. We calculated the overall incidence of these fractures and stratified the incidence by skeletal location and preoperative diagnoses. Fisher exact test was used to ascertain differences in fracture incidence. Risk ratios were calculated when appropriate. Significance was set at P
