      • Fracture by Jelilat Rasheed
      Biology 120
    • Fractures
      • What is fracture?
      • Fracture is a broken bone as a result of excess pressure
    • Types of fractures
      • compound fracture
      • Oblique fracture
      • Impacted fracture
      • Greenstick fracture
      • Transverse fracture
      • Comminuted fracture
      • Simple fracture
      • Spiral fracture
    • Oblique fracture
      • This is a fracture in the line of break runs obliquely to the axis of the bone
    • Causes of oblique fracture
      • An oblique fracture is caused by a twisting force to the long axis of the bone and causes fracture along shear line
    • Compound fracture
      • This is a type of fracture in which the bone is sticking through the skin.
      • A compound fracture is also known as open fracture.
    • Compound fracture
      • Risk of compound fracture
      • Treatment of compound fracture
      • Because compound fractures are open injuries to the outside world, there is significant risk of developing an infection around the fracture
      • Compound fracture are generally treated with surgery to clean the site of injury and stabilized the fracture
    • Impacted fracture
      • This is a type of fracture in which the opposite sides of the broken bone are compressed together.
      • Impacted fractures are commonly associated with hip fractures and fractures that occur when a person attempts to break a fall with outstretched arms
    • Symptom of impacted fracture
      • Pain is the most obvious symptom of impacted fracture. The pain can be excruciating depending upon the extent of the impacted fracture.
    • Diagnosis
      • X-ray is the most common tool for diagnosing fractured bones.
      • In case of impacted fracture, an MRI or CT scan may provide more detailed images of the several broken fragments
    • Treatment
      • Once the location and the extent of the fracture is detected, appropriate bone bruise treatment can be initiated.
