When you break your arm can the bone pierce the skin?
Me and my husband were at a rugby match that my brother was playing at, when someone was badly tackeled and fell down hard and broke there arm, and someone said that the bone that he had broke had pierced the skin is that possible or is someone being over dramatic?

Of course this can happen.
Badly broken bones (compound fractures) are like sharp sticks.
They pierce the skin and this makes it more severe, because there is now an increase in chance of infection.

ॐ Plea for Peace!
yes that's entirely possible.

Oooh, nasty. Yes it can, and that's a REALLY bad break that can get badly infected as well. Hope he had a good doctor.

in serious cases

It's definately possible. But in your instance it was probably over dramatic. If a broken bone does go through the skin, you can see it and people would've been freaking out much more.

It is very possible. it is called an open fracture. it is very possible.

Nikki D
it is totally possible and very painful they probably weren't being dramatic. it happens a lot more than people realize...

its possible so very possible

It is very possible.

it is very possible

yeah that can happen

Not it is not dramatic. This happens it is called a compound fracture the bone has broken and pierced the skin. This kind of break requires surgery but he will be alright.

yes..it seems to be called an open fracture. look at this image (it's ok it isn't a gory photo..just a diagram)

yes, there's a name for that type of injury but i forgot.

Yes; if the bone breaks through the skin, it is known as a compound fracture.

Robert B
If it's a bad break the bone can penetrate the skin. What a terrible thought.

bk lady ired

Afraid so

Its called a compound fracture.

that can happen yep!

Skin is tearable. So in theory yes. But it will not usually happen when it is matter of one's arm being broken.

Grey Mare
This is quite true, and the injury is called a "compound fracture". It is also a particularly dangerous injury since it exposes the bone to infection.

Treatment will almost certainly include a strong antibiotic medication.

The bone will have to be meticulously cleaned, then set. The soft tissue damage will need to be repaired, and antibiotics administered. The patient's condition will be closely monitored for several days after the event, to prevent and treat any signs or symptoms of infection.

Mr. Foo
Yes, very possible.

yep thats possible
its called an open fracture

yes it can come right through the skin

Please punctuate properly, folks
Which is called a 'compound-fracture'. There are a lot more injuries playing rugby than in martial arts or boxing.

it is possible. it depends on which bone was broken, at what point, and how much force was involved.

yes this is what is called a compound fracture,meaning the bone was completely broken into

taxed till i die,and then some.
Yes it is easily done.

yes it can happen and its nasty as hell, and its called compound fracture.

Its possible
