Fractures
r4tqv5svbmlfc0pgolvafep265FA  fracture1
  • A fracture means that there is a break or crack in a bone.
Causes of fractures:
  • Direct force i.e. heavy blow to the body
  • Indirect force i.e. twisting or wrenching (usually occurs when the bones are weak)

Types of fractures:
  • Open fracture: Skin above the fracture is broken i.e. one of the broken bone ends may be sticking out of the skin or there is a wound at the fracture site. Since the skin is broken, there is a high risk of infection.
  • Closed fracture: Skin above the fracture is intact.
  • Stable fracture: The broken bone ends do not move.
  • Unstable fracture: The broken bone ends can easily move out of position, resulting in severe damage to the blood vessels, nerves, and organs.
