A compound fracture can be defined as the fracture in the bone that protrudes through the skin resulting in an external wound. The treatment of compound fracture or open fracture is a complicated process. The healing of compound fracture or open fracture require a lot of time due to injury of the bone as well as that of surrounding soft tissues. Know what is compound fracture, its classifications, treatment, recovery and precautions.
The ligaments that are prone to tear commonly are knee ligaments and ankle ligaments, as they are the weightbearing joints and are at maximum use throughout the day and are always under high pressure. Know the causes, symptoms, treatment and recovery period of ligament tear.
