  • pelvic fractures
  • Exceptions to acute treatment include patients with ongoing or significant blood loss (i.e., pelvic fractures), elevated intracranial pressures, coagulation problems, and abnormal pulmonary ventilation pressures. (issuu.com)
  • reduction
  • The pattern of fracture is a clue to the cause of the break and often indicates the best way to draw the broken ends of the bone together, a process called reduction . (daviddarling.info)
  • fixation
  • A fracture may also require internal fixation with pins, nails, metal plates, or screws to stabilize the alignment. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Although these fractures are often undisplaced, they are relatively unstable and often benefit from percutaneous lag-screw fixation 6 . (radiopaedia.org)
  • Fixation of a fracture occurs prir to external fixation? (docsford.com)
  • Greater emphasis has been placed on minimizing operative techniques and limited exposures, whereas the decade of the eighties witnessed craniofacial principles of broad exposure and fixation at all buttresses for a particular fracture across all degrees of severity. (issuu.com)
  • proximal
  • Although often the fracture is undisplaced 5 , depending on how sagittal the fracture orientation is, variable proximal migration of the fracture occurs, with an articular step which comes into contact with the scaphoid 4 . (radiopaedia.org)
  • bones
  • The skull is made up of eight different bones which form the main part of the skull, protecting the brain. (accidentadvicehelpline.co.uk)
  • The other part of the skull (the face and jaw) consists of 14 bones. (accidentadvicehelpline.co.uk)
  • Fractures of the first type are by far the most common and are sudden breaks in healthy bones as the result of an applied force. (daviddarling.info)
  • The elderly are far susceptible to fractures than the pediatric population since their bones become brittle through senescence. (buzzle.com)
  • Diet can greatly affect the health of your bones, and hence make you more or less susceptible to bone fractures. (buzzle.com)
  • Different bones in the body have different capacities to bear impact, and hence vary in degree of susceptibility to fractures. (buzzle.com)
  • Certain medical conditions, such as osteopenia, osteoporosis, bone marrow cancer, bone cyst, or inherited bone disorders debilitate the bones to such an extent that a superficial impact, too, may cause the bones to fracture. (buzzle.com)
  • Less soft tissue stripping is required, bones are often easily replaced into their anatomic position and easier fracture repairs are performed. (issuu.com)
  • Which is not true of the skull bones? (start-seeking.ru)
  • heal
  • Most simple skull fractures will heal by themselves and you may be sent home with pain relief. (accidentadvicehelpline.co.uk)
  • then after one or two days, long, thin fibroblasts lay down a mesh or grid on which new tissue can grow (B). A blastema or area of new growth develops and new bone is forged that links the broken ends (C). Later remodeling strengthens the bone, restoring its true shape (D, E). At least four to six weeks are required for a fracture to heal completely. (daviddarling.info)
  • Fractures heal with normal bone, not with scar tissue. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • traumatic
  • For example, if you have suffered a traumatic brain injury or permanent damage to your skull or brain that will affect you for the rest of your life, you could expect to receive a substantial personal injury settlement. (accidentadvicehelpline.co.uk)
  • Normally, people suffer from a traumatic fracture as a result of them having performed an activity that subjected the bone to enduring excessive pressure, stress, or a deep impact -- for instance, a fall, or a vehicular accident. (buzzle.com)
