Complete Transverse Fracture
I just had a closed complete transverse fracture of the upper distal 3r of the tibia, what are my guidelines for returning to soccer?
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
I have predominantly transverse fracture of rt 5th metatarsal happened 2 weeks ago it ok to walk on it?
My fiance have a transverse fracture in his foot what would happen if he doesn't get it fixed and kettle it heal on its own?
Depends: Not all fractures require surgery. If a fracture is in good alignment, the best course may be to immobilize the foot in a cast or boot. If his fracture is in poor alignment, if there's gapping, or if a joint is involved, surgery may be required to aid in healing and prevent painful arthritis in the future. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had a transverse fracture in the middle of my left humerus 13 weeks ago. Should I persist in trying to let it heal naturally, or have an operation?
It depends on angle: If it was a simple fracture and the bone was in good alignment, let it heal on its own. If it was significantly displaced or angulated, a surgical reduction may be needed..But it is now 13 wks out, it is certainly healed/sealed back. So, if xray shows good angle/alignment, you are set, especially if no pain and doing well. Follow up with your ortho for consult if need be.. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Non displaced transverse fracture involving proximal diaphysis of the fifth proxmial phalanx what is non displaced transverse fracture involving proximal diaphysis of the fifth proxmial phalanx and what will happen woith treatment
There : There are three bones in the little ("pinky") toe (some folks only have two), and they are called phalanges (the pleural of "phalanx"). The one closest to the foot is the proximal phalanx, the one closest to the end of the toe is the distal phalanx, and the one in the middle is called.... Well, it's the middle phalanx. The diaphysis of a long bone (these are all considered "long" bones even though they're not really all that long) is the middle section of the bone. Transverse means sideways, and fracture means break. So to translate med-speak to english (google should think of doing something like this), you have a sideways fracture in the bone closest to the foot in your pinky toe in the middle of the bone. Non-displaced means the pieces are lined-up nicely, and there is no need to "reduce" it (put the pieces back in alignment). So this is really good news for you.... You don't need to have the thing put back in place, and the fracture is in the middle of the bone, so it doesn't cross or involve a joint, which means you're not gonna get arthritis in the toe later on (at least not from this fracture). Bone takes 6-8 weeks to heal, and since the 5th toe has it's own motion during the gait cycle, you really can't tape a 5th toe to a 4th toe. And there is no need to put a cast on for a toe fracture. So just keep your walking to a minimum for the next 2 months or so. Now's not the best time to do your christmas shopping... In case you have that planned for this weekend like i do... And you'll probably be more comfortable in a shoe with a stiff sole, because bending the toe with every step is going to cause that little piggy to go wee-wee-wee all the way home. How'd i do? ...Read more

2/12 ago fractured transverse process of L1,2,3 with the that of L2 being shattered still having sharp pain at L2 dermatome. How long to settle?
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
