  • Scaphoid fracture - is one of the more common injuries that should not be missed. (
  • During an exam the doctor will examine the skin for lacerations (which could indicate a chipped or jagged bone), palpate and check the entire arm and hand to determine if other fractures, dislocations, or related injuries have been sustained, and check the pulse to ensure that adequate blood flow is reaching the wrist and hand. (
  • II With less severe injuries there may be a minimally angulated greenstick fracture and a dislocation may be missed. (
  • X rays are the gold standard for diagnosing forearm fractures and must include views not only of the forearm, but the wrist and elbow as well to exclude concomitant injuries. (

  • A reverse of Galeazzi's fracture, this is the dislocation of the radius when the ulna has been fractured. (
  • If you have broken a bone or seriously injured your wrist before, falling or suddenly bracing your self with your hand and wrist can cause a dislocation. (
  • These may include an X-ray, MRI, or a CT scan to take a full look at that damage to the wrist area, and to check for any broken bones that may have occurred in addition to a dislocation. (
  • Wrist dislocation treatment depends on a few factors like the position of the bones, and if there is a break as well as a dislocation. (
  • When rehabilitating a wrist injury or dislocation, there are some exercises that you can do to build strength back in your wrist, as well to regain movement and flexibility in that area. (

  • Fractures of the ends of the radius and ulna also occur ( Colles fracture ), particularly in elderly women with osteoporosis . (
  • These fractures usually occur in children younger than eight years old. (
  • Fractures at this point usually occur on the inside, or medial, epicondyle in children from 9 to 14 years of age. (
  • Wrist strains can occur suddenly, or develop gradually through overuse. (
  • Triquetral fractures can occur due to forceful flexion of the wrist, causing an avulsion of the dorsal aspect of the bone that is often hidden on anterior radiographs, but can be seen as a tiny bone fragment on lateral views. (
  • Many wrist fractures occur during contact sports or sports in which you might fall onto an outstretched hand - such as in-line skating or snowboarding. (
  • Arm fractures generally occur because of trauma. (
  • The break can occur near the elbow joint, near the wrist joint or in the middle of the bone. (
  • Acute fractures occur suddenly from direct trauma, fall or violent twisting movement. (
  • Metatarsal fractures - occur to the long bones in the foot. (
  • At the end of one of these three bones, the ulna, is the olecranon, which forms the pointy tip of the elbow.This elbow bone is not afforded much protection by muscles or other soft tissue structures, making it extremely vulnerable to fractures when fallen upon or subjected to a direct force, as can occur in an accident. (
  • In a fall during which a person lands directly on the elbow or in an accident when the elbow forcefully contacts a hard object, an elbow fracture can occur. (
  • The majority of hip fractures occur in people who are 65 or older. (

  • Olecranon fractures happen when someone falls on elbow or when he/she is intentionally hit hard by a hard object (for example by a baseball bat in a fight or by dashboard in a car accident). (
  • The triceps muscle on the back of the upper arm help "pull" the olecranon off of the ulna. (
  • A patient with an Olecranon fracture in most cases requires immediate treatment because elbow movement stops and there is very uneasy pain. (
  • Not every olecranon fracture requires surgery. (
  • Elbow fracture (olecranon) surgery is required when the entire elbow fracture is displaced beyond scope of natural healing. (
  • Olecranon fracture - occurs at the prominant bony protrusion at the back of the elbow. (
  • A fractured elbow is also referred to as an Olecranon Fracture. (
  • The olecranon is the tip of the ulna that cups and rotates around the end of the humerous. (
  • This puts it at extra risk during injury, which accounts for it being the most commonly fractured carpal bone. (
  • It is the most common carpal bone to fracture among athletes. (
  • It is the 3rd most commonly fractured carpal bone. (
  • The most commonly fractured carpal bone is called the scaphoid or navicular bone. (
  • These types of fractures are when the bone snaps into one or more pieces and moves out of its normal positioning. (
  • These types of fractures require immediate medical attention because of the risk for infection. (
  • Pediatric Orthopedics is its own specialty because children have bones that are different from adult bones, with types of fractures seen mostly in young bones. (

  • Sometimes, the other bone of the forearm (the ulna) is also broken. (
  • The most common type of wrist fracture is through the end of the radius bone of the forearm, called distal radius fractures . (
  • This is a relatively complex joint as it is an articulation between the lower end of the long bones of the forearm ( radius and ulna ) and the eight small bones of the hand ( carpal bones ). (
  • The carpal bones connect the two bones of the forearm, the radius and the ulna , to the bones of the hand. (
  • It connects the lower part of the upper arm bone (humerus) to the top of the ulna (one of the bones of the forearm). (
  • These important bones of the forearm are strengthened by the action of the wrist flexors and extensors. (
  • There are two bones of the forearm: the radius and the ulna. (
  • A broken forearm is a break in one (or both) of the bones of the forearm: the radius and/or ulna. (
  • A forearm fracture is a break involving the bones of the forearm: the radius and the ulna. (
  • The wrist is formed by the two bones of the forearm-the radius and the ulna-and eight small carpal bones. (
  • In many clinical settings, imaging begins with radiographs that could reveal abnormalities, such as fractures, inflammatory arthritis, osteoarthritis or a congenital anomaly. (
  • When taking radiographs of the fracture , the nearest joint must also be included. (
