Neglected Fracture Symptoms & Treatment


ďƒź We have often heard of fractures and dislocation of bones in children. But dislocation or fracture of bones in growing children are completely different that of in adults.

ďƒź The paediatric fracture also known as neglected fracture should always be dealt with special care and concern. ďƒź The paediatric fracture further is treated by a skilled orthopaedic surgeon to eliminate the deformities of the bone present or to remove the functional disability.


Symptoms The symptoms of neglected fracture also differ from one child to another. Some of the common symptoms of neglected fracture are swelling, pain, redness, bruising or warmth in the affected area. Sometime the injured area of the child’s body also appears deformed. Likewise, the child finds it difficult to move or use the affected area in a normal way.


Treatment

The skilled orthopaedic surgeons always make the treatment plan based on the child’s age, type and severity of the fracture, and child’s tolerance to specific therapies and medication. Initially, they treat the neglected fracture through medication, traction, and /or cast or splint. But they perform surgery to reposition certain types of bones precisely. Based on the type and fracture of the fracture, the orthopaedic surgeons may use internal or external fixation devices.
