What is a fracture?

A fracture is the medical term for a broken bone. 

There are many different kinds of fracture; the type often depends on the severity of the cause. The break may be total or partial. If the force of the trauma only slightly exceeded the breaking point, the bone may merely crack. However, in the case of extreme force, such as in a road traffic accident, the bone may be shattered. If the broken bone then punctures the skin, this is known as a compound fracture or open fracture.
