Fractures and their Types

As we all know, Fracture is the crack in the continuity of the bone,and where there is a bone, there can be a fracture! It can be of various types but it has been broadly classified into:

1. Open Fractures – Fracture is present with open wound.

2. Closed Fracture – Fracture is present with no signs of injury on the outside.

These can also be classified according to the pattern of fracture:

1. Transverse Fracture – The Fracture line is crossing the bone transversely.

2. Oblique Fracture – Fracture line is oblique.

3. Spiral Fracture – Fracture line runs spirally in more than one plane.

4. Comminuted Fracture – In this fracture type, the bone breaks into various fragments.

5. Segmental Fractures – In this, there are two fractures in one bone at different levels.

How are these Treated?

Fractures can be treated both conservatively as well as surgically, Dr Badhwar at Bone & Joint clinic has a policy here that if we can heal the fracture without undergoing a surgery, then that’s the best approach. Surgical options are only considered if the conservative treatment doesn’t give a better prognosis. The fracture treatment protocol is as follows:

Conservative Treatment

1. X-ray – The X-ray of the bone is taken first, to know the type of fracture and the extent of damage.

2. Reduction of fracture– If the bone is dislocated as well, then it’s reduced first (taken into it’s normal alignment).

3. Splinting/plaster cast – Depending upon the area of fracture as well as the type of fracture, the plaster cast or the splint is applied.

4. X-ray before or after cast removal – This x-ray show the healing and the callus (calcium deposition around the fracture) made and thus the cast is removed.

5. Physiotherapy – A period of inactivity requires physiotherapy treatment to get fully functional again.

Surgical Treatment

1. X-ray – The X-ray of the bone is taken first, to know the type of fracture and the extent of damage.

2. Surgery – In the surgery the dislocated bone is taken into alignment and the fracture ends are joined together with the help of nails, wires or plates as per the requirement, known as internal fixation.

3. Sling – The patient is provided with a sling to keep the fracture ends stable.

4. Physiotherapy – Physiotherapy gets started alongside till full recovery.

 

Case 1

This person age 55 years met with an motorcycle accident and had broken wrist. He underwent reduction under computer guidance and fractured healed by application of plaster .

 

Case 2

This person aged 16 years fractured both bones of his forearm while during at play and his fracture was fixed by computer aided insertion of elastic nails.

Question 1. Do fractures occur only due to Trauma?

Answer. They mostly occur due to trauma, but there are also pathological fractures, which occur due to any metabolic diseases like osteoporosis and can also be due to bone tumors. Stress fractures also occur, which are generally due to excessive physical activity.

 

Question 2. What should I do If I am suspecting a fracture after a fall or trauma?

Answer. You should keep the suspected area, for example, leg or hand, supported and stable, and should reach the clinic as soon as possible to ensure faster treatment.

 

Question 3. What should not be done while travelling to the hospital while suspecting a dislocation?

Answer. Don’t try to put the pulled out bone inside of your own. You can end up damaging your nerves thus leading to paralysis of the limb concerned.

 

Question 4. Which method provides faster recovery, surgical or conventional method?

Answer. Surgery provides faster recovery as you don’t have to keep your fractured limb into a cast for long.

 

Question 5. Til how much time should I have to keep the limb into the cast?

Answer. It depends upon the type of fracture and the location of fracture, as the minor hairline fractures heal in just 20 days and some large femur fractures (Thigh bone) take more than 8 weeks to heal.

 

Question 6. What precautions should I take while my limb is in a cast?

Answer. Watch out for any pain, feeling of tightness, swelling or discoloration in the limb as it can be a sign of tight plasters which can lead to some serious complications.

 

Question 7. Do I need to move my other joints (nearby joints) as well?

Answer. Yes, the nearby joints need to be moved, for example if your elbow is in the cast and the shoulder and wrist joints are free, then you should keep moving your wrist and shoulder joints to prevent them from being stiff, unless advised otherwise.

 

Question 8. What will the physiotherapy treatment include?

Answer. The physiotherapy treatment will include:

  • Wax or heat treatment for muscle relaxation

  • Manual exercises to increase the range of motion

  • Mobilization, stretching and strengthening exercises

  • TENS treatment of pain is present

Question 9. Do I have to undergo any other surgery for the removal of nails after healing?

Answer. No, you don’t have to, because we use bioabsorbable implants. So, You can live your whole life without any difficulty or even remembering about any implant inside your bone.

 

Question 10. Do you offer pediatrics orthopedic treatment too?

Answer. Yes, we provide all kind of pediatric Orthopedic treatments, we avoid the surgery in kid’s fractures thus ensuring proper bone growth and full functionality.

 

Question 11. How big will be the cut or incision on the operative side?

Answer. We make the smallest cut possible, as Dr Badhwar tries to keep the cut to the smallest, in order to minimize the tissue trauma further.
