  • fracture
  • The timing of flap coverage, bone-grafting, and intramedullary nailing in patients who have a fracture of the tibial shaft with extensive soft-tissue injury. (springer.com)
  • These types of fracture cause more damage to the surrounding tissue, are less likely to heal properly, and are at much greater risk of infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • severity
  • The severity of injury is generally related to the height of the fall. (wikipedia.org)
  • The severity correlates with the amount of energy imparted to the bone at the time of injury and prognosis. (wikipedia.org)

  • damage
  • Chewing on hard objects also can damage soft tissues. (colgateprofessional.com)
  • Dentists are trained to diagnose and repair damage to the soft tissues, but doctors and oral surgeons in hospital emergency rooms usually handle serious injuries to these areas. (colgateprofessional.com)
  • Tourniquets are discouraged because they can cause tissue damage and impaired circulation - results in increased damage to limb or healing problems. (slideserve.com)
  • Re-injury: Avoid any activities that could aggravate the injury and cause further damage. (wikipedia.org)

  • platelet
  • How effective are platelet rich plasma injections in treating musculoskeletal soft tissue injuries? (bmj.com)
  • However, NSAIDs, including aspirin and ibuprofen, affect platelet function (this is why they are known as "blood thinners") and should not be taken during the period when tissue is bleeding because they will tend to increase blood flow, inhibit clotting, and thereby increase bleeding and swelling.
