How Long Does Skull Fracture Associated With Broken Bone Last
What are the short/long term effects of a hairline skull fracture. 3" in length from lambdoid suture forward toward the temporal bone.
Usually none: In an adult, the type of fracture you describe really has no long-term effects. Short term problems really have to do with any associated intracranial problems (hemorrhages, contusions, etc.). Potential fractures requiring treatment are ones that are exposed through the scalp (open), significantly depressed, ones involving skull sinuses, which can leak csf, or "growing" fractures in young children. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Dependswhere they go: If the fragments stay in place, there may be no long term problems. If they penetrate the meninges, which are the membranes that cover the brain, injury or bleeding in the brain can occur. ...Read more
I was diagnosed with a linear skull fracture in my left temporo paretial bone. Recovery time? And when can I resume football/weight training/gym? Thx
6 - 12 weeks: Healing is a gradual process, as filling a glass pouring liquid. If there was no brain damage, no broken blood vessels inside your skull, and no loss of consciousness, I believe you could start easy weight training now. Maximum strength of the fracture healing I estimate at 12 weeks, so I would not do full unrestricted contact sports for 12 weeks, and then only if you are symptom free. ...Read more

This is from a childhood skull fracture after a backward?
8-12 weeks: Each child is different. Some kids recover fast and some take a little more time. They should do an x-ray a few days down the road to make sure she is healing properly. I'm hoping they did a cat scan when it happened to make sure she didn't have any bleeding in her brain which is somewhat common after a skull fracture.Good luck. ...Read more

No way to know: I'm very sorry to hear about your injury. Dizziness is likely associated with a concussion and/or neck sprain that have also occurred at the same time as your skull fracture. Honestly, it's very hard to say how long dizziness can last. It can last days to months. If persistent, then medications can help and also vestibular-based physical therapy. ...Read more

Till at least it hea: The fracture should be fully healed and there should be no residual neurological damage/deficit. This would take over 2 months for the bones to heal. I can not estimate or predict if there is any neurological deficit untill after the first couple of months have passed. ...Read more
My 5 year old son suffered a 4 1/2 inch long skull fracture @ 14 mts when some1 pulled a cart out from under him. He now has head tics, is it related?
Probably not : This is a common age to develop tics. While there are a number of known causes of tics, head injury is not one. Roughly a quarter of the population will experience a tic at some point (some say more than a quarter). Given how often tics occur in the population, it would be difficult to say that the head injury was the cause. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
I was punched in my head over ten times last night and one of the punches was to my left temple. In 2005 almost died from basil skull fracture s?
Go see your Dr: And get a thorough neurologic exam. If u don't have any serious symptoms such as passing out, nausea vomiting, dizziness, increasing headache, passing out, bleeding in the eyes, nose and ear etc, u should be alright.

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
