Fractures Caused by Trauma

The skeletal system is prone to fractures. Fractures are caused by a break in the bone. The severity of fractures, their location and how the fragments are aligned can all vary. This blog post will give an overview of different types of fractures. These include stable, displaced (transverse), oblique (transverse), spiral, comminuted (comminuted), segmental, Greenstick, and Avulsion fractures.

There Are Many Types of Fractures

  1. Stable Fracture: Stable injuries can be caused by a variety of traumas. Stable fractures can be caused by a fall or direct impact to the bone in a car accident. The impact can be strong enough to cause the fracture, but the fragments are still aligned.
  2. Open fracture: When the force on the bone is enough to cause the skin to rupture, it can result in an open fracture. The bones may protrude from the body and expose them to contaminants, increasing the risk of infection.
  3. Displaced fracture: High-impact accidents and falls can result in displaced fractures. If a person falls awkwardly and breaks a bone, the ends of the fracture can be pushed away from their normal alignment. In car accidents, fractures can be displaced due to sudden impact or deceleration forces.
  4. Transverse Break: These fractures are common in car accidents and falls, when bones receive a direct hit or excessive force on their horizontal axis. Transverse fractures can occur in car accidents when a leg is directly struck against the dashboard, or in side-impact collisions.
  5. An Oblique Fracture: These fractures often result from a combination between rotational and bending force. These fractures can occur in a car crash or during a fall when the force is not strictly axial. If a person falls with their arm extended and then lands, the fracture may occur at an oblique position due to the rotational and bending forces.
