Some signs of a fractured bone include swelling, bruising, deformity, pain, and loss of function. If it is an open fracture, the bone might be seen protruding from the skin.
Pain (and a sense of weakness in the affected area) is the most significant sign of fracture.
No, crepitus is a sign of fracture.
"Corner Sign" occurs in a Salter Type II fracture, which is a fracture through the epiphyseal plate and metaphysis of a long bone. The fracture can separate a triangular fragment of the metaphysis, which is seen on x-ray as a small distinct wedge or "corner."
Transverse Fracture:Oblique Fracture:Spiral FractureComminuted Fracture
A broken bone is often called a "fracture" or "bone fracture". Some examples from the Wikipedia entry on bone fracture. * Complete Fracture- A fracture in which bone fragments separate completely. * Incomplete Fracture- A fracture in which the bone fragments are still partially joined. * Linear Fracture- A fracture that is parallel to the bone's long axis. * Transverse Fracture- A fracture that is at a right angle to the bone's long axis. * Oblique Fracture- A fracture that is diagonal to a bone's long axis. * Compression Fracture-A fracture that usually occurs in the vertebrae. * Spiral Fracture- A fracture where at least one part of the bone has been twisted. * Comminuted Fracture- A fracture causing many fragments. * Compacted Fracture- A fracture caused when bone fragments are driven into each other * Open Fracture- A fracture when the bone reaches the skin * Bug fracture- A fracture when the bone is in place, but the fracture has the appearance of a crushed insect.

A fracture with no opening in the skin is a Closed Fracture or a simple fractureA simple fracture.
a fracture in which skin is intact at site of fracture is a closed fracture or simple fracture whereas compound fracture or an open fracture is a fracture in which the skin is perforated and there is an open wound down to the site of the fracture.
Is fracture of the femur the same as fracture of the hip? Yes
fracture is a noun; or a verb, as in "I will fracture this brick".
When a fracture is associated with a laceration or cut in the area of the fracture, it is called an open fracture
There are various types of Fractures: 1. Simple fracture - does not break the skin. 2. Compound fracture - a fracture breaking the skin; also called "open fracture". 3. Greenstick fracture - a bend-like fracture in children. 4. Stress fracture - a fracture caused by repeated stress to the bone. 5. Pathological fracture - a fracture caused by underlying diseases. 6. Complicated fracture - also damaging nearby tissues. 7. Depressed fracture - skull fracture with bone forced inwards. 8. Comminuted fracture - multiple fractures and associated tissue damage to a single bone.
A closed fracture may also be referred to as a simple fracture. An open fracture is also called a compound fracture.
An avulsion fracture is when you pull a ligament or tendon from a bone and a piece of that bone comes with it. It is not actually a "fracture". A fracture is a break.
fracture involving the presence of an isolated bone fragment. This is also frequently called an avulsion fracture.

A hairline fracture is a nondisplaced fracture.
Open fracture is also called a compound fracture.
Quartz does not have cleavage. However, it does have fracture. Its fracture is conchoidal.
