Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0016658

NCI Thesaurus Code: C3046  (see NCI Thesaurus info)

Semantic Type: Injury or Poisoning

NCIt Definition: A traumatic injury to the bone in which the continuity of the bone is broken.

MEDLINEPLUS Definition: 

A fracture is a break, usually in a bone. If the broken bone punctures the skin, it is called an open or compound fracture. Fractures commonly happen because of car accidents, falls or sports injuries. Other causes are low bone density and osteoporosis, which cause weakening of the bones. Overuse can cause stress fractures, which are very small cracks in the bone.

Symptoms of a fracture are

  • Out-of-place or misshapen limb or joint
  • Swelling, bruising or bleeding
  • Intense pain
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Limited mobility or inability to move a limb

You need to get medical care right away for any fracture. You may need to wear a cast or splint. Sometimes you need surgery to put in plates, pins or screws to keep the bone in place.

CTCAE Definition: A finding of traumatic injury to the bone in which the continuity of the bone is broken.

NICHD Definition: A traumatic injury to the bone in which the continuity of the bone is broken.

CSP Definition: breaks or rupture in bones or cartilages.

MSH Definition: Breaks in bones.

RADLEX Definition: Breaks in bones. [MeSH]
