Fractures

  1. 1. Comminuted Fracture<br />FRACTURES<br />Spiral Fracture<br />Compound Fracture<br />Sade Buford<br />Professor Abdullah<br />Medical Terminology<br />
  2. 2. What Is A Fracture?<br />A Fracture is a broken bone caused by an sudden impact or constant stress.<br /> A Fracture is named to describe the damage and location of the bone.<br />
  3. 3. COMPOUND FRACTURE<br />A Compound Fracture occurs when a broken bone breaks through the skin. <br />A Compound Fracture can also be referred to as an Open Fracture. <br />
  4. 4. COMPOUND FRACTURE<br />
  5. 5. SPIRAL FRACTURE<br />Spiral Fracture occurs when the fracture line Spirals along the bone.<br />Commonly caused by twisting injury<br />Usually Slower to heal than other fractures<br />
  6. 6. SPIRAL FRACTURE<br />
  7. 7. COMMINUTED FRACTURE<br />ComminutedFracture occurs when the bone is Shattered, Splinter or Crushed into Pieces<br />Commonly caused by bullet injury or other extreme force of trauma.<br />
  8. 8. COMMINUTED FRACTURE<br />
  9. 9. FRACTURE REPAIR<br />FIXATION- A Procedure to Stabilize a Fractured Bone while it Heals. 2 Types of FIXATION. <br /> 1. EXTERNAL FIXATION is the use of casts, splints, and pins inserted through the skin<br /> 2. INTERNAL FIXATION is the use of pins, plates, rods, screws and wires applied during OPEN REDUCTION<br />
  10. 10. FRACTURE REPAIR<br />REDUCTION- The Correction of a fractured bone by Realigning the fragments. 2 Types<br /> 1.OPEN REDUCTION is the process of making a surgical incision at the fracture site <br /> 2. CLOSED REDUCTION involves the manipulation of realigning the bone without entering the body. <br />TRACTION- Applying Force on a fractured or dislocated limb to restore normal alignment<br />
