Trauma And Fracture Surgery Treatment & Diagnostics in C Scheme, Jaipur
Trauma And Fracture Surgery
Trauma and fractures occur in all age groups. This serious condition occurs due to auto-accidents, exercises, sports, or other physical activities. Trauma and fractures are defined as incidents that cause injury or breaking of bones. These include all the types of injuries that affect muscle ligaments, tendons, cartilages blood vessels, etc. The surgery performed to reduce the fracture bone or repair, reconstruct, or remove any torn ligaments or tendons effectively is Trauma and Fracture Surgery.
What Is the Procedure for Trauma and Fracture Surgery?
Depending on the target to be treated and the severity of the injury, the following techniques are followed:
- Fusion: In most cases of severe injury, this technique is chosen. In this, the surgeon joins the damaged bones together so that they heal and result in a single bone. This involves minimal to no movement of the joint.
- Joint Replacement:This technique is used when the part of the body cannot be repaired. It involves reconstructing and replacing the damaged part with an artificial body part or prosthetics.
- Arthroscopy: This is a minimally invasive surgery that is done with the help of an arthroscope. An arthroscope is a high fibre tube that has a high-intensity light and a camera attached to it. This is inserted into the targeted area and is used to view the damaged or affected joints. Then, the surgeon inserts the miniature tools to either repair or remove the fragments of torn ligaments, blood vessels, bone, or cartilages within the joints.
- Open reduction and internal fixation:In this technique, the surgeon makes incisions to expose the fractured bone. The fragments of the fractured or damaged bones are realigned, reconstructed, and stabilized with the help of pins, screws, plates, and metal wires. The incision is stitched and dressed. The affected area is then set into a splint, shoe, boot, or cast to enhance healing.
- Percutaneous screw fixation: Most of the injuries or bone damages, do not require making large incisions to replace them with implants. In this technique, a small incision is made. Reduction of the affected area is achieved by manipulating the affected bone with the help of an x-ray. The damaged or injured bone can be either pushed or pulled to set it in the right alignment.
