3 fracture types

  1. 1. 3 Fracture TypesBy Stacie Hauenstein Bio 120 WW10
  2. 2. Greenstick Fracture A greenstick fracture is a type of fracture that often occurs in young children. The bone does not break all the way through. One side of the bone breaks, but the other side only bend. It is very similar to what would happen if you were to bend a wet stick.
  3. 3. Example of a Greenstick Fracture
  4. 4. Comminuted Fracture A Comminuted Fracture is a fracture in which the bone is broken into several pieces. It can appear “shattered, splintered, or crushed.”
  5. 5. Example of a Comminuted Fracture
  6. 6. Spiral Fracture A Spiral Fracture is a fracture that is usually caused by a twisting of the bone. The fracture line appears as a spiral around the shaft of the bone. This type of fracture usually takes a longer time to heal than other types.
