When it comes to fractures, they can be quite different in their treatment and their prognosis depending on the extent of the injuries as well as the location of the injury. A victim can have a fracture on any part of their body, and treatment for these injuries differs vastly. An example would be leg or arm fracture, which can be treated with a cast or a sling where as a pelvic fracture cannot be wrapped in this manner. Unfortunately, the usual treatment is surgery for pelvic fractures. Organs can be damaged in rib related fractures, and skull fractures can require surgery to relieve pressure on the skull or remove bone fragments puncturing the brain.
