Avulsion fracture of the lesser trochanter.
Summary of "Avulsion fracture of the lesser trochanter."
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.

Skeletally immature children with ankle sprain are presumed to have distal fibula fracture than ligamentous injury. The purpose of this study is to determine the incidence of associated occult avulsio...
Radio-ulnar Fracture dislocation of the elbow is a high-energy trauma which can be associated with significant ligamentous injury in adults. We report an unusual triad of injury in a patient with avul...
Tibial eminence avulsion fracture at the ACL footprint may be caused by high-energy forces such as a fall, in which the ACL ligament proves stronger than the forces that hold the bone together. For re...
We developed 'lesser trochanter index' (LTI) and estimated its accuracy in predicting the underestimation of offset in the anteroposterior (AP) pelvic radiographs. We reconstructed 320 simulated radio...

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.
