Direct tissue damage caused by current 2. thermal damage from conversion of electrical to thermal injury 3. traumatic injuries from muscular contractions causing bone fractures or injuries from falls. In this book we have divided hand fractures into finger bones, thumb bones and carpal bones. We address both fractures and dislocations. We are not addressing the important topics of either the common soft tissue injuries e.g. tendon injuries or complex soft tissue injuries requiring fasciotomies, debridement or soft tissue coverage.

    Head fractures Neck and spinal injuries Crush injury Chest injuries Soft tissue injuries. There are bones in the human body and over muscles. Bones and muscles work together to provide strength, support, protection and movement to the human body. When stressed or damaged, the body’s ability to move is affected. Sometimes severe.

Physical Exam: Tenderness, swelling, and bruising are often present. A displaced fracture is usually associated with deformity. Low-energy fractures may be associated with mild discomfort and no deformity. High-energy fractures have the greatest risk of neurovascular, soft tissue or joint damage.
