Complications of skeletal trauma.

Complications of skeletal trauma include a wide variety of problems. Vascular complications are of prime importance in the early phase of the trauma. Most skeletal problems, including problems in fracture healing, osteomyelitis, and osteonecrosis, become clinically important in the later stages. It is hoped that radiologists' attention to such problems may make early detection possible and may improve the functional outcome in such patients.
