A fracture is a broken bone. A bone may be completely fractured or partially fractured in any number of ways (crosswise, lengthwise, in multiple pieces).
Common types of fractures include:
Stable fracture – The 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. The bone may or may not be visible in the wound.
Transverse fracture – This type of fracture has a horizontal fracture line.
Oblique fracture – This type of fracture has an angled pattern.
Comminuted fracture – In this type of fracture, the bone shatters into three or more pieces.
