Elevated BMI associated with lower extremity fractures in children

As published in Clinical Orthopedics and Related Research, elevated BMI is associated with fractures of the foot, ankle, knee, and leg (but not femur or hip) in children. In overweight, moderately obese, and extremely obese children, the ORs for fractures of the foot were 1.14, 1.23, and 1.42, respectively; fractures of the ankle, knee, and leg were 1.27, 1.28, and 1.51, respectively. Children 6-11 years of age were at highest risk.
