Treatment of Fractures in Paediatric Patients - (Items 50500 to 50588)

Items 50552 and 50560 apply to fractures that may arise during delivery and at an age when anaesthesia poses a significant risk and thus reduction is usually performed in the neonatal unit or nursery. 

Item 50576 provides for closed reduction in the skeletally immature patient and will require application of a hip spica cast and related aftercare. 

Medicare benefits are payable for services that specify reduction with or without internal fixation by open or percutaneous means, where reduction is carried out on the growth plate or joint surface or both.
