Continuing Medical Education for Primary Care Providers


Synopsis: accurate recognition of fracture type and displacement as well as urgent management with either the correct cast or surgery will optimize patient outcome.


Location of the fracture line, force of the impact, mechanism of injury, bone involved, isolated vs. multi-limb involvement, amount of displacement/angulation, intra-articular extension, extent of comminution, integrity of the soft tissue envelope, presence of a neurovascular injury, and limb alignment are key factors in assessing sports fractures
