  Title Growth restart / recovery lines involving the vertebral body: A rare, incidental finding and diagnostic challenge in two patients [case report]
Journal J Can Chiropr Assoc. 2011 Dec;55(4):313-317
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report
Abstract/Notes Objective: To present the phenomenon of growth restart lines and create awareness of the possible differential diagnoses.

Clinical Features: Two case reports outlining the presentation of growth restart lines found in the vertebrae of trampolinists. Emphasis in each case is placed on correlating the patient history with radiographic findings.

Intervention and Outcome: In both cases a conservative chiropractic treatment plan was initiated once the differential diagnoses could be ruled out.

Conclusion: Although the range of etiologies of growth restart lines is extensive, these case reports illustrate the importance of a comprehensive case history when presented with the radiographic finding of growth restart lines.

Objectif: Présenter le phénomène des lignes de reprise de la croissance et faire connaître les diagnostics différentiels possibles.

Caractéristiques cliniques: Deux rapports de cas mettant en relief la présentation des lignes de reprise de la croissance dans les vertèbres de trampolinistes. Dans les deux cas, nous mettons l’accent sur la corrélation entre les antécédents du patient et les résultats des radiographies.

Intervention et résultat: Dans les deux cas, un traitement chiropratique conservateur fut mis en oeuvre lorsque la possibilité de diagnostics différentiels fut éliminée.

Conclusion: Bien que l’éventail des étiologies des lignes de reprise de croissance était vaste, ces cas démontrent l’importance des antécédents détaillés lorsque les résultats des radiographies portant sur les lignes de reprise de croissance sont connus.
