  • Back
A detached fragment of labrum or bone from the anteroinferior margin of the glenoid rim, typical of anterior shoulder dislocations
Baseball Finger
aka Dropped or Mallet Finger

Hyperflexion injury to the distal interphalangeal joint, often associated with a dorsal avulsion fracture of the base of the distal phalanx
Intra-articular avulsion fracture subluxation of the base of the first metacarpal
aka Ski boot fracture

A fracture of the midportion of the distal 1/3 of both the tibia and the fibula
Boxer's Fracture
Fracture of the neck of the fifth metacarpal with dorsal angulation and often colar displacement of the metacarpal head
Boutonneire deformity
Hyperflexion of a proximal interphalangeal joint of a finger due to disruption of the central slip of the extensor tendon
Burst Fracture
Sever comminution of a vertebral body, usually secondary to axial loading, sometimes with a rotary component. Frequently there is a segittal fracture through the body plus fractures in the posterior elements, often seen with unstable spinal fractures
Butterfly fragment
Comminuted wedge-shaped fracture that has split off from the main fragments; this implies high velocity of trauma from a direction opposite the fragment
aka lap-type seat belt

A felxion distraction injury that results in compression of the vertebral body, posteriorly there may be ligament disruption without fracture and the disc-annulus complex may be disrupted. Alternatively there may be transverse noncomminuted fractures of the vertebral body and neural arch
Fracture/dislocation of the talonavicular and calcaneocuboid joints. It is derived from Chopart's description of an amputation through the midtarsal joints
Avulsion fracture of the spinous process of one or more of the lower cervical or upper thoracic vertebrae, most commonly at C7
Coach's finger
Dorsal dislocation of a proximal interphalangeal joint
Transverse fracture of the distal radial metaphysis proximal to the joint with dorsal displacement of the distal fragment and volar angulation. May also fracture ulnar styloid
Colles' reverse
Smith's fracture
