  • Clavicle fracture
    A clavicle fracture is a bone fracture in the clavicle, or collarbone.
  • Scapular fracture
    A scapular fracture is a fracture of the scapula, the shoulder blade.
  • Nasal fracture
    A nasal fracture, commonly referred to as a broken nose, is a fracture of one of the bones of the nose.
  • Rib fracture
    A rib fracture is a break or fracture in one or more of the bones making up the rib cage.
  • Hangman's fracture
    "Hangman's fracture" is the colloquial name given to a fracture of both pedicles or pars interarticularis of the axis vertebra (C2) (or epistropheus).
  • March fracture
    March fracture, also known as fatigue fracture or stress fracture of metatarsal bone, is the fracture of the distal third of one of the metatarsals occurring because of recurrent stress.
  • Skull fracture
    A skull fracture is a break in one or more of the eight bones that form the cranial portion of the skull, usually occurring as a result of blunt force trauma.
  • Salter–Harris fracture
    A Salter–Harris fracture is a fracture that involves the epiphyseal plate or growth plate of a bone.
  • Jefferson fracture
    A Jefferson fracture is a bone fracture of the anterior and posterior arches of the C1 vertebra, though it may also appear as a three- or two-part fracture.
  • Basilar skull fracture
    A basilar skull fracture (or basal skull fracture) is a fracture of the base of the skull, typically involving the temporal bone, occipital bone, sphenoid bone, and/or ethmoid bone.
  • Jones fracture
    A Jones fracture is a fracture in the meta-diaphyseal junction of the fifth metatarsal of the foot.
  • Sternal fracture
    A sternal fracture is a fracture of the sternum (the breastbone), located in the center of the chest.
  • Pseudarthrosis
    Pseudarthrosis (commonly referred to as a nonunion or false joint) is a bone fracture that has no chance of mending without intervention.
  • Mandibular fracture
    Mandibular fracture, also known as fracture of the jaw, is a break through the mandibular bone.
  • Vertebral compression fracture
    A compression fracture is a collapse of a vertebra.
  • Zygomaticomaxillary complex fracture
    The zygomaticomaxillary complex fracture, also known as a quadripod fracture, quadramalar fracture, and formerly referred to as a tripod fracture or trimalar fracture, has four components: the lateral orbital wall (at either the zygomaticofrontal suture superiorly along the wall or zygomaticosphenoid suture) inferiorly, separation of the maxilla and zygoma along the anterior maxilla (near the zygomaticomaxillary suture), the zygomatic arch, and the orbital floor near the infraorbital canal.
  • Cervical fracture
    A cervical fracture, commonly called a broken neck, is a catastrophic fracture of any of the seven cervical vertebrae in the neck.
  • Acetabular fracture
    Fractures of the acetabulum occur when the head of the femur is driven into the pelvis.
  • Olecranon fracture
    Olecranon fracture is a fracture of the bony portion of the elbow.
  • Pelvic fracture
    Pelvic fracture is a disruption of the bony structure of the pelvis, including the hip bone, sacrum and coccyx.
  • Lisfranc injury
    Lisfranc injury, also known as Lisfranc fracture, is an injury of the foot in which one or more of the metatarsal bones are displaced from the tarsus.
  • Bumper fracture
    A Bumper fracture is a fracture of the lateral tibial plateau caused by a forced valgus applied to the knee.
  • Clay-shoveler fracture
    Clay-shoveler's fracture is a stable fracture through the spinous process of a vertebra occurring at any of the lower cervical or upper thoracic vertebrae, classically at C6 or C7.
  • Boxer's fracture
    Boxer's Fracture is a colloquial term for a fracture of one of the metacarpal bones of the hand.
  • Colles' fracture
    A Colles' fracture is a fracture of the distal radius in the forearm with dorsal (posterior) and radial displacement of the wrist and hand.
  • Scaphoid fracture
    A scaphoid fracture, a fracture of the scaphoid bone also known as the carpal navicular, is the most common type of carpal bone fracture.
  • Stress fracture
    Stress fracture, also known as a hairline fracture, is a fatigue-induced fracture of the bone caused by repeated stress over time.
  • Ankle fracture
    An ankle fracture is a break of the ankle bones.
  • Orbital blowout fracture
    An orbital blowout fracture is a traumatic deformity of the orbital floor or medial wall, typically resulting from impact of a blunt object larger than the orbital aperture, or eye socket.
  • Radial head fracture
    Radial head fractures are a type of elbow fracture.
  • Calcaneal fracture
    Calcaneal fracture is a fracture of the calcaneus.
  • Gosselin fracture
    The Gosselin fracture is a V-shaped fracture of the distal tibia which extends into the ankle joint and fractures the tibial plafond into anterior and posterior fragments.
  • Pilon fracture
    A Pilon fracture, also called a Plafond fracture, is a fracture of the distal part of the tibia, involving its articular surface at the ankle joint.
  • Rolando fracture
    The Rolando fracture is a comminuted intra-articular fracture through the base of the first metacarpal bone (the first bone forming the thumb).
  • Chance fracture
    A Chance fracture is a flexion injury of the spine, first described by G.
  • Vertical root fracture
    Vertical root fractures are a type of fracture of a tooth.
  • Le Fort fracture of skull
    A Le Fort fracture of the skull is a classic transfacial fracture of the midface, involving the maxillary bone and surrounding structures in either a horizontal, pyramidal or transverse direction.
  • Bennett's fracture
    Bennett fracture is a fracture of the base of the first metacarpal bone which extends into the carpometacarpal (CMC) joint.

    Hyoid bone fracture is a very rare fracture of the hyoid bone, accounting for 0.
  • Malunion
    A malunion is when a fractured bone doesn’t heal properly.
