Broken Bones

Broken Bones

A break of any size is called a fracture. If the broken bone punctures the skin, it is called an open fracture (compound fracture).

TYPES OF BROKEN BONES
  • Greenstick fracture: an incomplete fracture in which the bone is bent. This type of fracture occurs most often in children.
  • Transverse fracture: a fracture at a right angle to the bone's axis.
  • Oblique fracture: a fracture in which the break is at an angle to the bone’s axis.
  • An impacted fracture is one whose ends are driven into each other. This commonly occurs with arm fractures in children and is sometimes known as a buckle fracture.
  • Comminuted fracture: a fracture in which the bone fragments into several pieces.
