Transcript

  • 1. FRACTURES
  • 2. BONES
    • Bones form the skeletal framework of the body, which provides support for the body, protects the internal organs and facilitates movement.
    • There are 206 bones in the human body.
    • Bones can bend a little but can’t handle too much pressure.
    • With too much pressure it can cause bones to break this is called a fracture.
  • 3. COMMINUTED FRACTURE
    • A comminuted fracture is a fracture in which the bone involved in the fracture is broken into several pieces. At least three separate pieces of bone must be present for a fracture to be classified as comminuted. This type of fracture can be challenging to treat due to the complexity of the break.
  • 4. COMMINUTED FRACTURE
    • Three ways to determine a comminuted fracture.
    • 1.Shattered
    • 2.Splintered
    • 3.Crushed into small pieces of fragments .
  • 5. GREENSTICK FRACTURE
    • The name for a greenstick
    • fracture comes from the
    • analogy of breaking a
    • young, fresh tree branch.
    • Greenstick fractures can
    • take a long time to heal
    • because they tend to
    • occur in the middle, slower
    • growing parts of bone.
  • 6. GREENSTICK FRACTURE
    • A greenstick fracture is a fracture in which there is an incomplete break; one side of bone is broken and the other side is bent.
    • Greenstick fractures is commonly found in children due to their softer and more pliable bone structure.
  • 7. IMPACTED FRACTURE
    • A fracture in which bones
    • fragments are pushed into
    • each other. This is caused
    • from falls or collisions.
    • Children are more likely to
    • get fractures or bruised
    • bones because they are
    • more prone to falling from
    • playing.
