  • 5. Comminuted Fracture
    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.Comminuted fractures are also sometimes known as multi-fragmentary fractures. This type of fracture often involves crushing or splintering of the bone, and it can occur anywhere along the length of the bone. A comminuted fracture is most common in elderly people or in people with conditions which weaken the bones.

  • 10. Compound Fracture
    Compound Fracture is when a bone breaks and penetrates through the skin it is known as a compound fracture. Compound fractures are usually caused due to high impact injuries like sports injuries, heavy falls, car crashes, and so on. This is generally considered to be a more serious form of fracture, since it requires immediate treatment. Usually, an operation is required to quickly cleanse the area and realign the bone. In addition, because of the higher chances of infection, a compound fracture is more difficult to heal.
