Trauma Management- Fracture

Home>>Trauma Management- Fracture

There are 206 bones in the human body; there is a possibility of breaking of bone on every fall. There are a few instances where fractures do occur, which can prove to be serious emergencies. When the fracture occur a portion of the bone may break or chip completely. This would damage the tissues and blood vessels close to the bone, resulting unbearable pain and swelling. It doesn't matter whether the fracture is small or big, the patient has to take correct steps early on after the accident. 
Types of fractures 
Transverse fracture
This is mostly seeing on children. Since bones of children are soft and tender, there is high chance of breaking. When a fracture at a right angle to the bone's axis, then it's termed as transverse fracture. 
Greenstick fracture
The term green stick has its name from the analogy of breaking a green branch of the tree. This is normally seen on tender bones. A "greenstick fracture" means that one side of the fracture has broken and one side is bent. 
Comminuted fracture
A comminuted fracture is a complete fracture where the bone is broken into several fragments. This type of fracture is usually a result of a serious injury. 
Oblique fracture
This type of fracture has an angled pattern that is, the bone will break diagonally to the right or left side. This fracture is typically unstable. 
Spiral fracture
This fracture is cause a twisting effect. The bone may become like staircase. Depending on the force, it can be displaced and stable. 
Open fracture
Open fracture result a complicated breaking of the bone which may come out of the skin breaking the tissue and blood vessels. In most cases, the can be directly visible. 
Closed fracture
Closed fracture would only break the bone. This won't pierce out through the skin or blood vessels. 
The fixing helps the patient to:

  • Control pain and edema
  • Protect fracture site with posterior splint or compression bandage
  • Minimize cardiovascular deconditioning
  • Maintain range in joints around the effected region (shoulder, wrist, and fingers)
  • Prevent contractures
  • Patient can don/doff sling independently with elbow at 90 degrees flexion with forearm in neutral
