Broken Bones Can Connect?
In the afternoon, I want to ask, is there a possibility that a broken bone will not grow together? What does the periosteal reaction mean? And how long can the bones connect and strong? thanks.
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Human bones have the ability to form or connect when a fracture occurs. But what is important is how the position and location of the fracture, if no repositioning or fixation of the two fractures occurs, bone remodeling will occur imperfectly or in an improper position, or what is called a malunion. The duration of bone recovery after a fracture or fracture can vary, depending on age, the part of bone involved, the type of fracture that occurred, and the medical treatment obtained. The duration can vary from a few weeks to several months.
There is no general periosteal reaction term in radiological readings to describe the absence of an infection process, tumor formation, or irritation of the bone.
For further information, examination, and treatment, you should consult with an orthopedic specialist.
So much information from me, hopefully it helps
