  • Posterior
  • The posterior margin of the fracture encroaches into the spinal canal at the L1 level. (medscape.com)
  • Postsurgical imaging must consider the appearance and the position of posterior pedicle screws, which are often used to stabilize lumbar spinal fractures. (medscape.com)
  • Bilateral body or parasymphysis fractures are sometimes termed "flail mandible", and can cause involuntary posterior movement of the tongue with subsequent obstruction of the upper airway. (wikipedia.org)
  • The Sanders classification groups these fractures into four types based on the location of the fracture at the posterior articular surface. (wikipedia.org)
  • Symptoms
  • Symptoms of fracture are pain, swelling, and discoloration of the skin at the site of the fracture. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other symptoms may include loose teeth (teeth on either side of the fracture will feel loose because the fracture is mobile), numbness (because the inferior alveolar nerve runs along the jaw and can be compressed by a fracture) and trismus (difficulty opening the mouth). (wikipedia.org)
  • congenital
  • Chondrodysplasia is a disease where a child's growth stops abruptly, resulting in an adult dwarf, with shortened and often deformed arms and legs and is regarded as a congenital deformity. (wikipedia.org)
  • Congenital radioulnar synostosis is rare, with approximately 350 cases reported in journals, and it typically affects both sides (bilateral) and can be associated with other skeletal problems such as hip and knee abnormalities, finger abnormalities (syndactyly or clinodactyly), or Madelung's deformity.

  • Lateral
  • Lateral radiograph demonstrates an L3 spinal compression fracture. (medscape.com)
  • The zygomaticomaxillary complex fracture, also known as a quadripod fracture, quadramalar fracture, and formerly referred to as a tripod fracture or trimalar fracture, has four components: the lateral orbital wall (at either the zygomaticofrontal suture superiorly along the wall or zygomaticosphenoid suture inferiorly), separation of the maxilla and zygoma along the anterior maxilla (near the zygomaticomaxillary suture), the zygomatic arch, and the orbital floor near the infraorbital canal.

  • wrist
  • Wrist fractures may also be caused by hyperflexion mechanisms and by direct blows to the wrist. (medscape.com)
  • All other fractures should have adequate orthopedic follow-up care to ensure proper wrist function. (medscape.com)
  • For patient education resources, see the Breaks, Fractures, and Dislocations Center, as well as Wrist Injury and Broken Hand. (medscape.com)

  • This is particularly relevant for open fractures. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the case of a unilateral condylar fracture the back teeth on the side of the fracture will meet and the open bite will get progressively greater towards the other side of the mouth. (wikipedia.org)
  • This results in gagging of the teeth on the fractured side (the teeth meet too soon on the fractured side, and not on the non fractured side, i.e. "open bite" that becomes progressively worse to the unaffected side). (wikipedia.org)
  • bony
  • In pure orbital blowout fractures, the orbital rim (the most anterior bony margin of the orbit) is preserved, while with impure fractures, the orbital rim is also injured. (wikipedia.org)
