An avulsion fracture of the lesser trochanter is a very rare injury often misdiagnosed as a muscle lesion or hip distortion. This report concerns the avulsion fracture of the lesser trochanter of a 13-year-old boy, suffered on a runway preparing for a long jump. Conservative treatment without weight-bearing was indicated for 6 weeks. Twelve weeks after the injury the patient resumed his normal sport activities.

Instability of osteoporotic pertrochanteric fractures is defined by loss of medial/lateral cortical integrity with the posteromedial fragment including the lesser trochanter being pivotal for load dis...
The Segond fracture was classically described as an avulsion fracture of the anterolateral capsule of the knee. Recently, some authors have attributed its pathogenesis to the "anterolateral ligament" ...
Posterior cruciate ligament avulsion fracture from its tibial insertion is a rare pathology in children. It is usually caused by high-energy traumas and its diagnosis is not always easy. Late diagnosi...
Although avulsion fractures of the calcaneal tuberosity are rare injuries, these can be a challenging problem with frequent complications, such as loss of reduction and soft tissue problem. Anatomical...
In this series, we aimed to describe the sonographic findings of chondral avulsion fractures that develop concomitant with lateral ankle ligament injury in children. We performed stress sonography dur...
Levator Ani Muscle (LAM) avulsion occurs in 13-36% of women having their first birth. These damages by palpation and ultrasound of the pelvic floor can be detected. Avulsion of the LAM res...

The main aim is to assess the effectiveness of introducing a standardized intervention program for treatment of fracture patients as measured by changes in the fracture rates and the morta...
Childbirth is a major risk factor for pelvic floor muscle (PFM) trauma. In one third of women, stretching of the PFM will result in an avulsion injury (i.e. disconnection of the muscle fro...
Implantable fracture fixation devices attached to bone fragments with screws to bridge the fracture gap and shield the fracture site from stress as bone heals. (UMDNS, 1999)
Fracture in the proximal half of the shaft of the ulna, with dislocation of the head of the radius.
The use of metallic devices inserted into or through bone to hold a fracture in a set position and alignment while it heals.
Fracture of the lower end of the radius in which the lower fragment is displaced posteriorly.
The use of internal devices (metal plates, nails, rods, etc.) to hold the position of a fracture in proper alignment.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
