your worst injury

Postby Microwave on Mon Feb 02, 2009 4:58 am

so I'm typing this from a laying down position and it is difficult to see the keyboard so sorry for the mistakes.

Anyway, first day back at school and with ten minutes left I managed to break my leg by jumping.

(Tibial Tubercle Avulsion)

Ifrom http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1250124-overview

A tibial tubercle avulsion fracture is usually an injury to the knee occurring in adolescence, during the transitional phase of physeal closure just prior to completion of growth. This fracture most often is an isolated injury related to push-off or landing while jumping as the quadriceps eccentrically contracts to support the individual's weight. The fracture tracks through the proximal tibial epiphysis and may extend into the anterior portion of the knee joint. The proximal tibia physis closes from posterior to anterior, and the fracture pattern is dependent on the amount of physeal closure present at the time of injury. Some authors consider this injury to be a variant of a Salter-Harris III fracture pattern. Open reduction and internal fixation is recommended, as reduction is difficult to maintain against the pull of the quadriceps muscle


explains it, It also says this

Tibial tubercle avulsion fractures are commonly seen in athletic males (frequently basketball players) aged 14-16 years. These fractures account for 1-3% of physeal injuries.

...Additional predisposing factors include patella baja, tight hamstrings, preexisting Osgood-Schlatter disease, and disorders involving physeal abnormalities.


I'm a 15 year old basketball player who has previously had Osgood-Schlatter's disease, so yeah I was pretty much fucked lol.

Anyway I'm having surgery tomorrow to bolt the shit back on that broke, ITT post yours or someone you knows worst injury

Nothing comment worthy, I'm afraid.

I've got two that come an equal first. They ended up to both be pretty mild, but I'm fairly certain I would have been killed in either case without help. When I was very young I tumbled into the shallow end of a kid's pool and smacked my head on the bottom - it didn't split my head open, but I was concussed for a few minutes. That probably would have ended badly if I wasn't being supervised so closely. A few years later I was attacked by a Border Collie crossed with something big. The bastard locked its teeth on my head and pinned me on the ground, and had a red hot try at mauling me. I'm not sure if I would have died at that point - there was a lot of blood but it wasn't a serious injury - but the dog didn't look it planned on letting go of me any time soon if it weren't for its owner intervening.

BL re: your leg, Micro. Let us know how the op goes.

Did they put the dog down? And did you get to watch and bask in sweet revenge?

Jesus fuck, I had to google what the fuck those were, only to find that they are just Tylenol and T-3s. And yes, T-3s do kickass compared to plainass Tylenol. Really wish pharmaceutical names were standardized across the globe

Brutal. It's going to suck when it starts healing and the sutures start to itch.

Don't forget the screws are there. You don't want to put your leg in the microwave and: "Oh crap! I can't put metal in the microwave!"
I can't beleive doctors didn't know not to put metal you.
Hey look a new signature I wonder if anyone will notice ;)

In binary your stitches say (`�, which kinda' looks like Who?'s avatar with a scythe. Are you trying to tell us that Who? sliced your leg open, but you're not free to talk because he's right behind you, ready to spill your guts all over the floor at the first sign of dissension??

If so tell him I said hi.
