Get Quick Treatment for Broken Elbow | eHEALTH Magazine

Get Quick Treatment for Broken Elbow | eHEALTH Magazine | eHEALTH | Scoop.it
jimcon's insight:

Quick medical treatment and surgery are needed to avoid worsening of elbow fracture after any injury
Dr GK Agrawal, HOD Orthopaedics, Fortis Hospital, Shalimar Bagh, New Delhi

Twenty five-year-old Priya Kukreja (name changed), a young working professional, never thought of unexpected health exigencies at her age – until she accidently slipped on ice and broke her elbow. Instead of wasting any time or resorting to home remedies to relieve her of pain, her parents simply rushed her to the hospital to get immediate medical attention. This saved her elbow.
Complicated fractures with multiple bone pieces were detected on X-ray when the young lady was examined. Immediate medical attention was required as there was pain, swelling, deformity and restricted movement at the right elbow.
A complex operation was performed, and bone pieces were fixed with special plates and screws. After three months of the procedure, she is now able to move her arm normally. This would not have been possible if any delay or wrong treatment would have been provided to the patient. It was only prompt action from her family as well as timely medical treatment and surgery that did not let her case become worse.
