• Bone can be considered as a composite material (with mineral and collagen phases)

  • While bones are the hardest and most rigid structures in our body, they cannot endure some collisions, impacts and falls​

  • Breaking or cracking of bones is referred to as fracture

  • Bone fractures are most common among elders and young children

  • If a bone fracture is diagonal to the bone’s axis, then it is called oblique fracture

  • Oblique fractures are most common for fragile bones​
