Fracture (Definition)

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

Subchondral fracture in ankle proximal aspect of navicular. What's the treatment?

Subchondral fracture in ankle proximal aspect of navicular. What's the treatment?

Subchondral : ankle navicular fracture is confusing. Ankle and navicular are two seperate areas. Either way if you have such a fracture treatment will require non weight bearing cast for 4-6weeks and X-ray exams during that period for evaluation of bone healing. ...Read more

What can result from a displaced 5th metatarsal fracture and crushed cuboid bone injury?

What can result from a displaced 5th metatarsal fracture and crushed cuboid bone injury?

Many problems: The fact that 3 muscles attach to the fifth metatarsal ( the peroneals) and that the fracture is displaced can cause an imbalance in these muscles and a non-healing fracture of that metatarsal. The peroneus longus passes under the cuboid- this muscle stabilizes the inner foot in gait and this crush fracture can cause problems with walking-- you should see your podiatrist for reconstruction. ...Read more

Could a transversal fracture of the 4th metacarpal bone in the hand require surgery?

Could a transversal fracture of the 4th metacarpal bone in the hand require surgery?

Unstable: Transverse fracture of 4th metacarpal tends to be unstable and difficult to stabilize with closed reduction and casting. It often requires open reduction and internal fixation for adequate stabilization to allow fracture to heal in anatomic position. ...Read more

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

Should I do surgery of subtle volar fracture through proximal base of proximal phalanx of thumb with volary distraction of avulsed fracture fragment?

Should I do surgery of subtle volar fracture through proximal base of proximal phalanx of thumb with volary distraction of avulsed fracture fragment?

See a hand surgeon: Fractures through joint surfaces are generally more problematic than those outside of joints. Depending on a number of factors, they may predispose to the onset of early arthritis in the joint if the surface is not reconstructed accurately. I would see a hand surgeon to evaluate the particulars of your case. Good luck. ...Read more

Broken Bone (Definition)

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 (Definition)

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
