Fracture article structure

Dr Tim Luijkx and Assoc Prof Frank Gaillard et al.

Articles describing fractures require a different set of subheadings as the usual epidemiology, clinical presentation, pathology etc. are not relevant. 

Example article: clavicular fractures


Introductory sentence, with the title of the article repeated and emboldened, e.g.: Clavicular fractures are common, accounting for 2.6-10% of all fractures, and often require minimal treatment. In some instances open reduction and internal fixation are required.


This is optional, and not relevant for many fractures which do not have any specific epidemiology.
