Complete fractures occur when both sides of the bone are broken in two. Complete fractures are inherently less stable and typically require more involved treatment and close monitoring to ensure they heal in the preferred alignment.
Transverse – Transverse fractures occur straight across or perpendicular to the length of the bone.
Comminuted – Comminuted fractures cause the bone to break into more than just two pieces.
Oblique – Oblique fractures cause the bone to crack at an angle.
