One thought on “What are the different types of traumatic fractures?

  1. Arti says:

    Wedge fractures are the most common type of lumbar fracture and are the typical compression fracture of malignancy or osteoporosis. In pure flexion-compression injuries, the middle column remains intact and acts as a hinge. They occur as a result of an axially directed central compressive force combined with an eccentric compressive force. Although wedge fractures are usually symmetrical, 8-14% are asymmetrical and are termed lateral wedge fractures.
