closed fracture

the bone breaks but does not puncture through the skin and protrude through to the outside

2

open fracture

bone breaks and punctures through the skin protruding to the outside of the body

3

comminuted fracture

is when the bone breaks in multiple areas

4

greenstick fracture

when part of the bone bends and does not fully break; often seen in kids bc their bones are flexible, softer, and still developing

5

spiral fracture

bone is twisted or rotated like a corkscrew

6

avulsion fracture

a tendon or ligament is taxed and pulled too hard causing it to pull away and break the bone

7

oblique fracture

a break at an angle caused by the outside force coming at a right angle to the bone

the fracture is perpendicular to the shaft of the bone

pathological fracture

caused by diseases making the bone so weak that it may break without warning simply by putting minimal pressure to it
