The Mechanics of a Broken Bone
A fracture occurs when a force is applied to a bone that is stronger than the bone itself. Risk of fracture depends in part on age. While children are very susceptible to fractures of a less serious nature, the elderly are prone to serious fractures because our bones become more brittle as we age.
The most common types of fractures are:
- Complete fractures (when the bone completely breaks)
- Incomplete fractures (when the bone breaks but not into pieces)
- Compound fractures or open fractures (when the bone breaks the skin)
- Simple fractures (transverse, oblique, communicated, impacted, stress and hairline fractures)
Very often fractures require surgery, potentially involving screws, plates and/or rods.
