Periarticular Fractures

Periarticular fractures occur in or immediately adjacent to a joint. Since joints allow movement of the limbs, a fracture of the bones at either end of a joint can cause severe pain and disability. Periarticular fractures most often occur in the ankle, leg (tibia), thigh (distal femur) and elbow, although they may involve any joint.
