Bone Bruises Of The Metacarpal Bones
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
Treatment for undisplaced fracture or bone bruise of posterior medial talus and articular surface, and minor bone bruise distal calcaneous?
Will a nondisplaced tibia fracture(not growth plate fracture) change the height of the bone once fully healed?
Pain, can't walk: Femoral neck fractures are extremely debilitating. Elders get these fractures commonly and may have the affected leg shorter than the other and/or rotated. The patient will not bear weight on this side. Sometimes these fractures are less obvious, requiring advanced imaging studies (like mri) to detect. In this case, if you give a tap on the heel, sometimes the patient will feel it up in the hip. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Comminuted impacted fracture through the neck of the left humerus with associated mild valgus angulation of the humeral shaft. Can this heal in SLING?
In short YES. : I typically do not perform surgery on nondisplaced fractures of the proximal humerus. I tell people it is like having ice cream on a cone. If the ice cream (humeral head or ball) falls off the cone(shaft) then it needs surgery if the ice cream is tilted or slightly smashed no surgery. If it is blown to prices then surgery. ...Read more
Bayonet apposition of complete fractured radius and ulna under arm cast as seen in xray both bones are in parallel position, would it heal?
Yes : As i told you before it would be best if this were treated operatively but yes it will most probably heal but with some loss of function/ length / motion ect also check vit d level as if it is low then healing will be negatively impacted. ...Read more

I have a "severe bone bruise" of the metacarpals and was placed in a cast they dr said they would call back for follow-up how long will wear this cast?
If the bone: is not broken, generally the will leave the splint or cast on for 1-2 weeks. If there is a fracture, usually the cast stays on for 4-6 weeks. At your next doctor visit, they will probably take another Xray to make sure there was not a small fracture that didn't show up on the first Xray. Hope this helps! ...Read more
Depends: A bone bruise, as opposed to a bone fracture, does not need to be put in a cast in the sense of protection from displacement. But a cast can be useful to control swelling, potentially help with pain, and may make the hand more functional while you are recovering. I certainly would discuss with your doctor the different options for immobilization that are available. ...Read more
I jammed my hand and now my metacarpal bones in my hand are tender and red is it possible they are broken?
Is a cast of the forearm to the tip of the fingers appropriate treatment for a bone bruise for the metacarpals?
Depends: That is a fairly extensive cast for a "bone bruise" as you put it. A bruise does not necessarily have to be immobilized at all; but sometimes we will to control swelling, improve function, or we are concerned there may be more to the injury. Don't hesitate to discuss with your orthopedic surgeon. ...Read more
Pain but no fracture: A bone bruise is a diagnosis of exclusion -- meaning that you need to rule out that it is broken. Once that is done, and the injury was hard enough to hit the bone -- then you have a bone bruise. There are certain nuances to that but that is the basic idea. I practice in bingham farms -- performance orthopedics (www.Performanceorthopedics.Com). I would be happy to see you. ...Read more
Pain with pressure!: Sesamoid (or seed bones) are bones at the base (two) of your great toes, at the mcp joints or your second and fifth digits, and your knee caps. Sesampoid bones exist to protect tendons from extrem pressure. So pain where they are is the chief symptom. Sesamoid bones are also invovlved in arthritis, most specifically spondylitis, so if seen, it could be rheumatic as well as traumatic! ...Read more
Bone bruise: To be sure about a "bone bruise" or contusion, an MRI is usually the best way. However, a toe bone bruise is not a serious injury that needs an mri. Instead, simple x-rays, and clinical findings of pain, swelling should be sufficient enough. I hope this helps, if so please vote me up, or follow me. Thanks and good luck! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Weeks: A bruised shoulder bone is basically a non displaced sub cortical fracture which means that it takes at least 4-6 weeks for the bone to heal. These are not standard fractures since it does not break the outer cortical lining of the bone, the bruise involves the underlying soft cancellous bone. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
6 to 8 weeks: Most rib injuries are fractures. Rib "bruises" are most likely fractures in which the ends fit together so well they can't be seen on xray. In most people, rib fractures heal completely in 6-8 weeks. ...Read more
Fracture Healing: Hi MuhammadW, If you have a displaced fracture of your 3rd metacarpal, it would be wise to have the fracture reduced (put back into anatomical position) by an Orthopaedic Surgeon. With metacarpal fractures, this is usually accomplished with closed reduction and percutaneous pinning. The risks you take when you do not seek treatment include nonunion of the fracture, which can be painful. ...Read more
