Systematic Review: Contact, Cigarette and Flame Burns in Physical Abuse: A Systematic Review

Visit

Kemp AM, Maguire SA, Lumb RC, Harris SM, Mann MK

This systematic review identifies features of intentional non-scald burns in physical abuse.

Systematic Review: A systematic review of abusive visceral injuries in childhood--their range and recognition

Visit

Maguire SA, Upadhyaya M, Evans A, Mann MK, Haroon MM, Tempest V, Lumb RC, Kem...

Objectives: To define what abusive visceral injuries occur, including their clinical features and the value of screening tests for abdominal injury among abused children.

Systematic Review: Retinal haemorrhages and related findings in abusive and non-abusive head trauma: a systematic review

Visit

Maguire SA, Watts PO, Shaw AD, Holden S, Taylor RH, Watkins WJ, Mann MK, Temp...

Aim: To report the retinal signs that distinguish abusive head trauma (AHT) from non-abusive head trauma (nAHT).

Systematic Review: Clinical and radiographic characteristics associated with abusive and nonabusive head trauma: a systematic review

Visit

Piteau SJ, Ward MG, Barrowman NJ, Plint AC

Objective: To systematically review the literature to determine which clinical and radiographic characteristics are associated with abusive head trauma (AHT) and nonabusive head trauma (nAHT) in children.

Systematic Review: Neuroimaging: what neuroradiological features distinguish abusive from non-abusive head trauma?

Visit

Kemp AM, Jaspan T, Griffiths J, Stoodley N, Mann MK, Tempest V, Maguire SA

Objective: To identify the evidence base behind the neuroradiological features that differentiate abusive head trauma (AHT) from non-abusive head trauma (nAHT).

Systematic Review: Unexplainedfractures:child abuseorbone disease? A systematic review

Pandya NK, Baldwin K, Kamath AF, Wenger DR, Hosalkar HS

Child abuse and neglect (CAN) is a serious problem that has major implications for the welfare of the child involved. Unexplained fractures are of particular concern to the orthopaedic surgeon, who must often consider alternative diagnoses to CAN. We therefore (1) determined which bone diseases most commonly mimic CAN; (2) what types of osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) are most commonly confused with CAN and why; and (3) what specific findings in OI and bone disease render a mistaken diagnosis of CAN more likely.

Systematic Review: What are the clinical and radiological characteristics of spinal injuries from physical abuse: a systematic review

Visit

Kemp AM, Joshi AH, Mann M, Tempest V, Liu A, Holden S, Maguire S

Aim: Systematic review of 'What are the clinical and radiological characteristics of inflicted spinal injury?'

Systematic Review: Screening injured children for physical abuse or neglect in emergency departments: a systematic review

Visit

Woodman J, Lecky F, Hodes D, Pitt M, Taylor B, Gilbert R

Screening markers are used in emergency departments (EDs) to identify children who should be assessed for possible physicalabuseand neglect. We conducted three systematic reviews evaluating age, repeat attendance and injury type as markers for physicalabuseor neglect in injured children attending EDs.

Systematic Review: What neuroimaging should be performed in children in whom inflicted brain injury (iBI) is suspected? A systematic review

Visit

Kemp AM, Rajaram S, Mann M, Tempest V, Farewell D, Gawne-Cain ML, Jaspan T, M...

Aim: To investigate the optimal neuroradiological investigation strategy to identify inflicted brain injury (iBI).

Systematic Review: Which clinical features distinguish inflicted from non-inflicted brain injury? A systematic review

Visit

Maguire S, Pickerd N, Farewell D, Mann M, Tempest V, Kemp AM

Aim: A systematic review of the scientific literature to define clinical indicators distinguishing inflicted (iBI) from non-inflicted brain injury (niBI).

Systematic Review: A systematic review of the features that indicate intentional scalds in children

Visit

Maguire S, Moynihan S, Mann M, Potokar T, Kemp AM

Aim: To conduct a systematic review to identify distinguishing features of intentional and unintentional scalds.

Systematic Review: Diagnosing abuse: a systematic review of torn frenum and other intra-oral injuries

Visit

Maguire S, Hunter B, Hunter L, Sibert JR, Mann M, Kemp AM

A torn labial frenum is widely regarded as pathognomonic of abuse. We systematically reviewed the evidence for this, and to define other intra-oral injuries found in physical abuse.

Systematic Review: Are there patterns of bruising in childhood which are diagnostic or suggestive of abuse? A systematic review

Visit

Maguire S, Mann MK, Sibert J, Kemp A

Aim: To investigate what patterns of bruising are diagnostic or suggestive of child abuse by means of a systematic review.

Systematic Review: Can you age bruises accurately in children? A systematic review

Visit

Maguire S, Mann MK, Sibert J, Kemp A

Aim: To investigate whether it is possible to determine the age of a bruise in a child in clinical practice by means of a systematic review.
