Natural History in Pediatric Orthopaedics: How Good is the Data on Which We Base our Decisions? Proper knowledge of the natural history of pediatric orthopaedic conditions is essential to providing high quality care. Without an understanding of how patients’ conditions would evolve untreated, one is unable to accurately evaluate the relative benefits of a given form of treatment. In spite of this, the natural history of many pediatric orthopaedic conditions is poorly understood. This supplement, based on proceedings from 2018 POSNA Precourse, draws attention to the data that is known and the data that is unknown about several common pediatric orthopaedic conditions.
