Complications Caused By Serious Bone Fractures

  • Infection: Infection can occur within the bone itself (osteomyelitis), the joint area, or the soft tissues surrounding the bone. Infections can vary in intensity, but can prove to be life-threatening if not properly treated. Bone fractures that move out of proper healing alignment are at increased risk of infection.
  • Blood loss: Bone fractures can also result in extreme blood loss. In the case of a compound fracture—severe bone breakage that tears through the skin—blood loss can be a very real threat to life. Internal bleeding can also occur as a result of fractures that disturb the soft tissue and ligaments surrounding the bone.
  • Fat embolism: A fat embolism is a rare, but serious complication that occurs in long bone fractures such as the tibia or femur. After a fracture, bone marrow releases fat into the veins. The fat can lodge either in the lungs, causing blood flow obstruction, or in the arteries, causing central nervous system problems.
