Fracture article structure

Last revised by Vikas Shah on 27 Mar 2021

Articles describing fractures require a different set of subheadings from a 'standard' article, as the usual epidemiology, clinical presentation, pathology etc., may not be relevant. 

Example article: clavicular fractures


Introductory sentence, with the title of the article repeated and emboldened, e.g.: Clavicular fractures are common, accounting for 2.6-10% of all fractures, and often require minimal treatment. In some instances open reduction and internal fixation are required.

This is optional, and not relevant for many fractures which do not have any specific epidemiology. 

Many fractures have eponymous names.

This section should include a bullet list of related articles.
