Osteoporosis is when the body loses too much bone, or doesn't make enough, or both.
comminuted fracture-This type of fracture is very unstable. The bone shatters into three or more pieces.
bowing fracture-Bowing fractures are incomplete fractures of tubular long bones in paediatric patients (especially the radius and ulna), often require no intervention and heal with remodelling.
Open fracture: When broken bones break through the skin, they are called open or compound fractures. For example, when a pedestrian is struck by the bumper of a moving car, the broken tibia may protrude through a tear in the skin and other soft tissues.
