Hypersensitivity Post Fracture Of Tibia
3 fx of med and post malleolus w oblique fx of fib, disruption of syndesmosis, several ligaments torn via eversion injury. Classification?(weber, etc)
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

Does subchondral insufficiency fracture of the superolateral aspect of the left femoral head with extensive bone marrow edema require a surgery?
Likely, eventually!: It sounds like you probably have some avascular necrosis with subchondral collapse. Unfortunately, the controversial treatments don't usually work once collapse has started.

What is the implication of the rod and screw in fractured femur bowing on X-ray 8 weeks post op in 58 year old male?
Could be a problem: If the surgeon felt this was new bowing that could be due to too much stress on the rod. That would be very unusual with modern rods as they are very strong...Especially to see as early as 8 weeks. If it is just on an x-ray report you need to talk to your orthopedist as it us likely nothing. Most rods are normally bowed and may bow slightly more after being inserted. ...Read more
It varies: A non complicated tibia fracture usually heals in any where between 6-12 weeks. If you have already had a tibia fracture which did not heal, which is what a nonunion is, it really depends on the nature of your problem and the type of surgery done. In the best cases scenario, it will heal in6-8 weeks. In the worst, it may not heal again. You would sure want to avoid nicotine and nsaids. Thanks. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

AVN - navicular: AVN or avascular necrosis implies that the bone dies. The talus and navicular are the more common in the foot/ ankle as their blood supply is very limited when injured. treatment is very long and time consuming. Can take 3-4 months. bone stimulators are helpful, staying off your foot- non weight bearing, physical therapy - ultra sound techniques help. avoid NSAIDS ...Read more

2-3 months to heal: A fractured tibia is a significant injury. Closed, non-operative management for stable well-aligned fractures treated in a cast would be expected to heal in about 2-3 months. Worse injuries that require surgery and a long intramedullary nail or a plate and screws (or similar), may take longer to heal, especially if there is a loss of tissue (skin, muscle, etc.) from around the fracture area. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Nerve injury: The symptoms you describe are called allodynia which means that normally non painful stimuli become painful. It is always from nerve disease or injury.

I fractured my tibia 2 weeks ago playing soccer and had it pinned and plated but not plastered.How long before I can play again? I have the X-ray .
Return to play: You want a concrete answer and it is not that simple. Despite a open reduction and fixation the bone must heal completely before you can return to soccer. This is a major bone and could be expected to take 4-6 months to heal. If you are doing rehabilitation with range of motion and strengthening during the healing process you will hasten your return but again the bone must heal first. ...Read more

2-3mo: While most bones heal on average in 6 wks, the tibia is prone to delayed healing or even non healing. Partially as this bone is not fully encased in vascular muscle tissue and vascularity= healing. It isn't unusual for this bone to take upwards of 3+ mo to heal. And in adults often warrants surgery as well to stabilize the break while it heals. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Depends on location of the tibia fracture. IF you have not seen an orthopaedic surgeon yet, you should. Majority of adults need surgical treatment of tibia fractures whether they are proximal, shaft or distal types. Rule of thumb for most fractures-12 weeks for bone to heal if you are healthy and the bones are well aligned. Do you have xrays handy? ...Read more
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.
