Broken Bones

A common type of injury resulting from accidents is a broken bone or fracture injury. There are a number of different types of fracture injuries. Fractures in Las Vegas can be caused by tripping and falling, landing awkwardly after a jump, walking or running on uneven surfaces, a sudden impact such as a car crash or rolling the ankle.

Common types of fractures include:

  • Stable fracture. Broken ends of the bone line up and are barely out of place.
  • Open, compound fracture. The skin may be pierced by the bone or by a blow that breaks the skin at the time of the fracture.
  • Transverse fracture. This type of fracture has a horizontal fracture line.
  • Oblique fracture. A fracture that has an angled pattern.
  • Comminuted fracture. The bone shatters into two or more pieces.

The most common causes of fractures are trauma, osteoporosis, and overuse. The symptoms that may accompany a fracture are swelling and tenderness around the injury, bruising or deformity. Fractures are treated by resting the fracture site in the case of a stable fracture or surgery when dealing with a comminuted fracture. The fracture can be immobilized by casting or with a functional cast or brace. Traction is also used to align a bone or bones by a gentle steady pulling action. External fixation with pins and screws is often used when dealing with comminuted fractures or other types of complete fractures.
