A spiral fracture (a.k.a. torsion fracture) is a bone fracture occurring when torque (a rotating force) is applied along the axis of a bone. Spiral fractures often occur when the body is in motion while one extremity is planted.
Compression Fracture Definition. A compression fracture occurs when the bone collapses, particularly in short bones such as the vertebrae in the spine. Vertebral compression fractures result when the bone tissue of the vertebral body collapses. Save. Watch: Spinal Compression Fracture Video.
Displaced and non-displaced fractures refer to the alignment of the fractured bone. In a displaced fracture, the bone snaps into two or more parts and moves so that the two ends are not lined up straight. If the bone is in many pieces, it is called a comminuted fracture.
A comminuted fracture is when the bone breaks into several pieces. A transverse fracture is when the fracture line is perpendicular to the shaft (long part) of the bone. An oblique fracture is when the break is on an angle through the bone. ... A stress fracture is a hairline crack.
A Salter-Harris fracture is a fracture that involves the epiphyseal plate or growth plate of a bone. It is a common injury found in children, occurring in 15% of childhood long bone fractures.
A comminuted fracture is a break or splinter of the bone into more than two fragments. Since considerable force and energy is required to fragment bone, fractures of this degree occur after high-impact trauma such as in vehicular accidents.
a fracture of the bone, occurring typically in children, in which one side of the bone is broken and the other only bent.
a fracture of the lower end of the radius in the wrist with a characteristic backward displacement of the hand.
Pott's fracture, also known as Pott's syndrome I and Dupuytren fracture, is an archaic term loosely applied to a variety of bimalleolar ankle fractures. The injury is caused by a combined abduction external rotation from an eversion force.
