Absolutely! Once the fracture has healed and depending on the locaiton of the fracture and whether the joint and or the tendons were involved, one can have difficulty ty[lkadkfa; ;'n'dfalkfnd' a.
Not usually. Most if treated don't leave on with signiicant activity issues.
Depends. It depends on what type of fracture. They can be treated with a splint or surgery. It is very important that you get this evaluated. See a hand surgeon.
See below. These symptoms can only be adequately diagnosed only after a thorough evaluation by your doctor. This may include labs and other satudies. Once all of the information is in, your doctor can let you know what's going on, and what to do to help you.
Finger fracture. Finger fractures usually will present with localized swelling. There will also be tenderness at the fracture site. If the fracture is displaced there may be gross deformity of the finger. Some fractures at the distal portion of the finger may be a small avulsion and the presentation is a mallet finger. The distal finger joint will be flexed and the person is unable to straighten it.
Pain and swelling. Finger fractures are common hand injuries which can present with acute pain and swelling, and, if severe, deformity and bruising (ecchymosis). Radiological workup, with x ray films dedicated to the hand and finger, is recommended if a fracture is suspected. A diagnosis of a finger fracture should warrant temporary immobolization in a splint and a timely evaluation by a hand doctor.
Open fracture repair. Fractures can be treated closed (without an incision) or open (with a formal incision at surgery). There are pluses and minuses of each and the path taken depends on the location of the fracture, displaced or nondisplaced, type of fracture, and surgeon preference.
Surgery. Open repair of a finger fracture is commonly abbreviated, orif, which stands for open reduction internal fixation. Many times a fracture is complex and requires making an incision in the skin, dissecting the fracture and utilizing screws and sometimes a plate to reduce and stabilize a fracture. This is unlike a closed procedure where no skin incision is made.
Fix farcture. This is the technique in which you open a finger to expose the fracture site and fix it under direct vision. It is usually repaired with pins, plate and screws or wire.
Exam + X-rays. That's pretty much it. But make sure you follow up with an orthopedist, because it may need splinting initially, and there can be improper healing, affecting hand function that needs to then be either prevented or treated.
Exam and X ray. A complete patient and trauma history, a thorough physical examination, and dedicated x ray films of the affected digit can confirm the diagnosis of a finger fracture. Typically, these injuries present with acute pain and swelling, and local brusing (ecchymosis). One should seek medical evaluation if a fracture is suspected.
Exam, xray. Exam looks at motion, alignment. Swelling, stiffness, sensation, lack of laceration and an xray is ordered based upon suspicions.
Bone fracture. I am not sure what you mean but it is most commonly a traumatic injury. Occaionally it can be due to bone disease from tumor.
Broken finger bone. Finger fractures are common hand injuries which can present with acute pain and swelling, and deformity and bruising (ecchymosis) if severe. Radiological workup, with x ray films dedicated to the hand and finger, is recommended if a fracture is suspected. A diagnosis of a finger fracture should warrant temporary immobolization in a splint and a timely evaluation by a hand doctor.
Finger fracture. A finger fracture is any fracture invovling that part of the anatomy.
4-8 weeks. 4-6 weeks, depending on which bone in the finger is fractured and the severity of the fracture. Simple fractures will heal in about 4 weeks, at which point, casting is stopped. However, it usually takes 8 weeks for a bone to be as strong as it as before the injury, so activity is sometimes still limited until after that time.
Varies. A non displaced fracture in a child may tame a few weeks. A displaced fracture may take longer. A significant fractr in an adult may tame months.
