a break which does not extend all the way across the diameter of a bone. part of the bone is bent Greenstick fx
fractures are complete breaks at more or less a 90 angle to the shaft of the bone. Transverse fx
fractures run at an acute angle across the shaft of a bone, leaving sharp fragments on both sides. Thus there can be associated soft tissue injury such as lacerated muscles, nerves or blood vessels. Oblique
fractures are superficially similar to oblique fractures, but there is an important difference. This kind of fracture is caused by twisting force or torque. This kind of injury is seen in sports and in criminal assault cases. Spiral
fractures are typified by many (more than 2) fragments Comminuted
is a special case of fracture that occurs when a ligament or tendon is torn away from the bone to which it is attached. Avulsion
the cortex on one side of the bone is broken and the other side is bent. When the bone straightens a faint fracture or wrinkle like defect is seen on the opposite side Green stick fx
fx that enters at an angle toward the middle of the bone and exits the same side butterfly fx
piece of bone that completely breaks off segmental
crack in bone incomplete fx
