  • trauma
  • Comminuted fractures are associated with high-energy trauma such as being hit by a car or sustaining a gunshot injury. (petplace.com)
  • There is no breed predisposition, but since vehicular trauma is the most common cause of comminuted fractures, young intact males are more commonly affected. (petplace.com)
  • Any areas of skin, muscle and other soft tissue trauma is dressed and covered to prevent further contamination at the fracture site. (petplace.com)
  • Splints and casts are usually inadequate types of repair for comminuted fractures due to their inability to restore the normal anatomy and the fact that many times they would conceal and impair treatment of concurrent soft tissue trauma. (petplace.com)
  • Supracondylar fractures of femur have a bimodal age distribution, with a high incidence in young adults from high energy trauma, such as motor vehicle accidents and a second peak in elderly with minor fall [ 2 , 3 ]. (imedpub.com)
  • Complications
  • Complications of comminuted fractures can include infection, compartment syndrome, vascular necrosis , and nonunion, in which the pieces of bone fail to join together. (wisegeek.com)
  • Among them, in comminuted fractures of anterior maxillary wall, multiple depressed and impacted bony segments cannot be reduced easily when performing internal fixation using plates and screws or wires, and inadequate restoration leads to a range of complications. (e-acfs.org)
  • In comminuted fractures of anterior maxillary wall, the use of a resorbable mesh with fibrin glue can be an advantageous and effective method for a successful restoration without complications. (e-acfs.org)
  • surgery
  • It may be necessary to pin the fracture with surgery so that the pieces will have a chance to knit together. (wisegeek.com)
  • The hypothesis was that fixation of these fractures using suture anchors with reinforcement by ipsilateral semitendinosus tendon will be rigid enough to allow early rehabilitation with good functional results with no need for further surgery for hardware removal. (ghrnet.org)
