The independent risk of fracture infection was increased in patients with grade IIIB or IIIC fractures, internal or external fixation, lower-leg fracture, any blood transfusion, or injuries resulting from motorcycle accidents or motor vehicle—pedestrian accidents.

The Gustilo open fracture classification system is the most commonly used classification system for open fractures. This system uses the amount of energy, the extent of soft-tissue injury and the extent of contamination for determination of fracture severity. Progression from grade 1 to 3C implies a higher degree of energy involved in the injury, higher soft tissue and bone damage and higher potential for complications.

Fractures: Types and Treatment

A bone fracture is a medical condition where the continuity of the bone is broken. A significant percentage of bone fractures occur because of high force impact or stress. However, a fracture may also be the result of some medical conditions which weaken the bones, for example osteoporosis , some cancers , or osteogenesis imperfecta also known as brittle bone diseases. Here are some key points about fractures. More detail and supporting information is in the main article.

The management of open fractures continues to provide challenges for the orthopedic surgeon. Despite the improvements in technology and surgical techniques, rates of infection and nonunion are still troublesome. Principles important in the treatment of open fractures are reviewed in this article. Early antibiotic administration is of paramount importance in these cases, and when coupled with early and meticulous irrigation and debridement, the rates of infection can be dramatically decreased. Initial surgical intervention should be conducted as soon as possible, but the classic 6 h rule does not seem to be supported in the literature. All open fractures should be addressed for the risk of contamination from Clostridium tetani. When possible, early closure of open fracture wounds, either by primary means or by flaps, can also decrease the rate of infection, especially from nosocomial organisms.

Average 4. He has a 3x2cm wound over the fracture site, and he immediately receives Gram positive and Gram negative coverage along with a tetanus booster. The patient is splinted, optimized, and brought to the operating room where the wound is debrided and classified as a Type IIIB fracture. Deemed stable, the plastic surgery team arrives and acutely performs a free flap for coverage, following definitive fixation with an intramedullary nail. On examination, his wound is grossly contaminated with soil. In addition to a cephalosporin and an aminoglycoside, penicillin is given.

Treatment principles in the management of open fractures

The authors present their experience about intramedullary nailing in tibial shaft fractures in a serie of cases. Patients had been reviewed up to consolidation and the mean follow up date was 20 months. The main complication 6. The authors noticed an infection rate directly proportional to the open type of fracture. The mean consolidation time based on objective radiologic data was 24 weeks. The functional results and articular motion were very good. The authors defend intramedullary nailing because of the low rate of complications and the possibility of early mobilisation.

A fracture is a broken bone. It can range from a thin crack to a complete break. Bone can fracture crosswise, lengthwise, in several places, or into many pieces. Most fractures happen when a bone is impacted by more force or pressure than it can support. Most fractures are accompanied by intense pain when the initial injury occurs. It may become worse when you move or touch the injured area. In some cases, you may even pass out from the pain.

Как только эти два агрессора увидят, что Бастион пал, они издадут боевой клич. Фонтейн ничего не ответил, погруженный в глубокое раздумье. Слова Сьюзан Флетчер о том, что ключ находится в Испании, показались ему обнадеживающими.

    Soft tissue injuries are vital in management of fractures and. Tscherne classified them into groups according to severity and initially for closed fractures and later.

    A bone may get fractured completely or partially and it is caused commonly from trauma due to fall, motor vehicle accident or sports.
