Hello doctor, I have a broken bone I put up a pen but got a few months I fell off and the pen was broken and I do not replace it has been 1 year since the operation of the pen installation. I X-rayed the bones together but how come the shape is not straight like there is an arch. What should I do …

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Laying the pen on a broken bone, has the main goal to keep both broken bones straight during the recovery process. Because if not kept straight, complications can occur in the form of a connection that is not perfect, tilted or curved, or even does not connect at all. So in your current case, chances are you are experiencing a complication of a fracture called mal-union due to not immediately repairing a broken pen.


If you already experience this condition, unfortunately there is often nothing you can do to fix it, unless a repeat operation is done by deliberately breaking the slanted bone, then waiting to reconnect using a pen. However, this cannot be done in every case and a special orthopedic skill is needed.


Our advice, maybe you better discuss your current condition with your orthopedist, so you can find a solution together. But we need to remind you that because this handling can be said to be quite late, you also have to start mentally prepared in case the outcome of the discussion later is that nothing can be done in your present condition. So, hopefully answering your question.
