Fractures in the UC setting are very common. Most are straight forward but there a many pitfalls and complications that can be avoided by doing a thorough exam. The steps to this exam include the following:

Step 1: Don’t get distracted by the injury and miss other possible injuries

Step 2: Check distal neurovascular exam on all fractures to rule out possible vascular compromise or nerve injury

Step 3: Rule out an open fracture by examining the overlying skin

Step 4: Examine the joint above and below the fracture to rule out possible transferred forces causing injury
