Avulsion Fracture Of Navicular Bone
3 days ago I was told I have a small avulsion fracture of my navicular bone on my left foot. My heal of my foot has a burning pain. Is that normal?
You may: Be changing the way you are walking due to the fracture and this may be causing the burning pain. Alternatively, it may be a separate bonafide issue.
A fracture is a broken bone. As there is cartilage at the end of many bones at the joint, a fracture may also include a break in the cartilage. Fractures and broken bones are the same thing. It seems that many believe that a "fracture" is a lesser injury or an incomplete break in the bone, but this is not correct. Fractures may be displaced or ...Read more
All my midfoot bones are severely contused on MRI and avulsion fracture my proximal navicular even after 8 wks. How much longer to heal? Frustrated.
Bone contusions: Bone contusions can take many months to fully resolve of symptoms. Bone fractures ordinarily take 6 weeks to heal.
Avulsion fractures: All avulsion fractures, regardless of their location, have a similar appearance on xray. You will find a fragment of bone broken off and separated from the remainder. The difference is that the break takes place at the insertion of a tendon and is the result of a pull from that muscle.
Immobilization: ? Usually the treatment is no weight bearing, followed by a walking boot to protect the foot. As pain improves, activity can be accelerated this process can take 6-12 weeks.
If you had a proximal avulsion fracture of your tarsal navicular, what would happen if you walked on it without immobilization?
What to do if I found out that my foot (navicular) fracture was an avulsion fracture and would like to know: - is it as serious as a normal fracture?
Avulsion fracture of tarsal navicular has not healed at all after 9 weeks in boot. What are the likely treatments?
Month Post foot surgery. Navicular avulsion fracture removal and cyst curettage. What could cause severe pain in that foot when breathing?
R/O DVT: DVT=Blood Clot would cause unilateral foot pain and swelling.. A Doppler US of the lower extremity will define the anatomy. Other conditions to evaluate are LYMPHEDEMA/RSD (REFLEX SYMPATHETIC DYSTROPHY). /AVN (AVASCULAR necrosis)Also a full clotting W/U. You need a prompt exam and through W/U.
Same thing: Chipped bone and fracture are same thing. A chipped is just a small fracture.
Need more info: Is this injury recent, what bones where injured and at what level of the bone.
I have an avulsion fracture of the cuboid bone - it is very small can I use a boot and weight bear? My body won't let me use crutches
Yes: You could use cam boot and walk with it.See 1 more doctor answer
Currently healing from confirmed big toe avulsion fracture. I can bend the toe, but there's an odd snapping feeling on the side where the fracture is. Is that the tendon that pulled away from the bone? What could that be? It feels odd.

I have an avulsion fracture of my 5th metatarsal bone in my foot. What will I experience during my treatment?
Avulsion fracture of tibial tuberosity had bone graft due to nonunion shouldn't bone graft be seen on x-ray? Mine isn't n still nonunion 18mth later
Usually healed @18mo: I am sure you are concerned. Bone grafts go thru phases on x-ray. The graft is dead by nature and acts as a scffolding for your own bone to grow on and the graft is absorbed, so it may look at some point like its gone. A ct scan can be helkpful to determine if there is any fusion taking place. Follow recomendations of your doc who knows best what was done.
Knee injury. MRI report "PCL Avulsion fracture of tibia (6-7mm displacement) with adjacent tibial bone edema. Fibers are intact." is surgery needed?
Yes, it should if-: -U expect 2 have a functioning knee 4 the rest of Ur life. It can only separate more, & a simple reduction & fixation will do what U want it 2 do, reunite the fragment 2 the tibia. The image is a tear & requires a major reconstruction if not fixed. U risk the fragment becoming a nonunion.
Where: It is important to know where and how this fracture occurred.
Foot break: A tarsal fracture that has 'avulsed' or pulled off a smal piece of bone secondary to a tendon (peroneus brevis, for example) or a ligament. almost all are treated non/ operatively in a cast/ walking boot w/ progressive wt. Bearing. The serious tarsal (mid- foot) fracture is the 'Lis - Franc' injury. See an experienced ORS if this is the case. Best of Luck!
Muscle contrarction: An avulsion fracture occurs when a tendon or ligament, along with a piece of the bone it's attached to, gets pulled away from the main part of the bone. Treatment resting and icing the affected area, then doing controlled exercises to stretch the tendon and promote bone healing — is usually all that's needed for an avulsion fracture to heal. In rear case we have to do surgery to put back
Is it broken or fractured is a question I am often asked. The answer is basically that a broken or fractured bone is the same thing. A fracture means a break in the cortex or the strong layer of outer bone cells. In an adult the average time for that to heal varies greatly but is often considered to ...Read more
Bone is a living growing tissue made mostly of collagen (protein that provides soft framework) & the mineral calcium phosphate that adds strength & hardens the framework. Two types of bone are found in the body; cortical (dense compact outer layer) & trabecular (makes up inner layer, ...Read more
