The Middle East Pediatric Orthopedic Society (MEPOS) has been established by Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeons practicing in the Middle East region. All members to the society take a special interest in Children’s Orthopedics. The society’s aim is to improve the detection, prevention and care of children suffering from musculoskeletal disease in the Middle East.
The 5th edition of the Middle East Pediatric Orthopaedic Society (MEPOS) Annual Meeting is to be held in Sofitel Downtown Dubai, UAE from 11 – 13 October 2018.
The scientific programme for MEPOS Annual Meeting 2018 has been developed to provide you with an innovative and comprehensive overview on the latest research developments in Pediatric Orthopedics and what are the advanced global best practices in the detection, management and treatment of various pediatric orthopedic conditions.
“The compromised fetal and neonatal lives and their possible long-term consequences”
Background: Childhood injuries are a global epidemic. Accidents resulting in childhood injury and death were first identified as a concern over a century ago. However, “accidents” leading to injury were not recognized as being predictable and preventable until more recently.
Objectives: To describe the worldwide epidemic of childhood injuries, and look at international successes in the field of injury prevention.
Methods: Literature pertaining to injury prevention was reviewed to describe the history of childhood injury prevention, guiding principles of injury prevention, successful strategies for prevention, and future directions.
Result and Conclusion: Through surveillance, evidence-based injury prevention initiatives, and multi-disciplinary collaboration, we anticipate further reduction in childhood injuries.

Down Syndrome is observed on March 21st, all around the world for many years. World Down Syndrome Day is all about raising awareness about the disorder and finding ways to improve the lives of those who suffer from it.
Bentham Science publishes articles related to Down Syndrome in its high impact journals including:
The Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), a new database within the Web of Science by Clarivate Analytics, has accepted to index four journals published by Bentham Science Publishers. The titles are:
The Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) is a new index by Clarivate Analytics, extending the range of publications in Web of Science to include high-quality, peer-reviewed publications of regional importance and in emerging scientific fields. ESCI complements the highly selective indexes by providing earlier visibility for sources under evaluation as part of SCIE, SSCI, and AHCI’s rigorous journal selection process. Inclusion in ESCI provides greater discoverability which leads to increased citations.
Journal: Current Pediatric Reviews
Background: Despite its lengthy history, the study of jaundice, hyperbilirubinemia and kernicterus suffers from a lack of clarity and consistency in the key terms used to describe both the clinical and pathophysiological nature of these conditions. For example, the term Bilirubin-induced Neurological Dysfunction (BIND) has been used to refer to all neurological sequelae caused by exposure to high levels of bilirubin, to only mild neurological sequelae, or to scoring systems that quantitate the progressive stages of Acute Bilirubin Encephalopathy (ABE).
Objective: We seek to clarify and simplify terminology by introducing, defining, and proposing new terms and diagnostic criteria for kernicterus.
Methods: We propose a systematic nomenclature based on pathophysiological and clinical criteria, presenting a logical argument for each term. Acknowledging observations that kernicterus is symptomatically broad and diverse, we propose the use of the overarching term Kernicterus Spectrum Disorders (KSDs) to encompass all the neurological sequelae of bilirubin neurotoxicity including Acute Bilirubin Neurotoxicity (ABE). We further suggest subclassification of KSDs based on the principal disabling features of kernicterus (motor, auditory). Finally, we suggest the term subtle KSD to designate a child with a history of significant bilirubin neurotoxicity with mild or subtle developmental delays.
Results and Conclusion: We conclude with a brief description of the limited treatments currently available for KSD, thereby underscoring the importance of further research. We believe that adopting a systematic nomenclature for the spectrum of clinical consequences of hyperbilirubinemia will help unify the field and promote more effective research in both prevention and treatment of KSDs.
