In medical terms, fracture is defined as a broken bone. Depending on the intensity of the break, the orthopaedic surgeon advises the correct fracture treatment to the patient. While there are a few bones which are healed by wearing a cast, there are certain others requiring invasive treatment such as bone fracture repair.
The bone fracture repair is a kind of surgery where a broken bone is fixed using metal screws, pins, rods, and plates, which help in holding the bone in place. Bone injuries can be of many kinds – partial fracture or complete fracture. It could be fractured crosswise, lengthwise, or in multiple pieces.
Many a times, surgery is required to treat the fracture. Meanwhile, all broken bones' treatment has one basic rule: the broken pieces should be brought back into its basic position and prevented from moving out of place until they are healed.
Broken bone are healed by ""knitting"" back together, a new bone is formed surrounding the broken parts' edge. There are different kinds of treatments to treat fractures that include cast immobilization, functional cast or brace, traction, external fraction etc. Cast immobilization includes the use of plaster which is most common fracture treatment.
The cast has limited movement of nearby joints, while the traction helps in aligning bones by pulling action. The doctors apply different treatment s depending on the area of fraction.
