Comminuted fracture

Last revised by Mohammad Taghi Niknejad on 25 Aug 2022

Comminuted fractures are fractures where more than 2 bone components are created.

The problem with the term is that it includes a very heterogeneous group of fractures from a 3 part humeral head fracture to a multi-part fracture of the femur following a high-energy road traffic accident.
