The forgotten phase of fracture healingTrauma care has improved dramatically over the last three decades with decreased mortality and improved techniques for soft tissue cover and fracture stabilisation. After trauma, it is recognised that there is a golden hour in which optimum resuscitation is essential. Following the golden hour there is an early phase in which debridement of open wounds and soft tissue cover should be obtained along with fracture stabilisation, usually within 48 hours. However, at present clinicians treating fractures are powerless in this phase as they do not have a technique for monitoring the early rate of healing. This is compounded by the fact that healing times are known to vary according to the bone, type of fracture and location within the bone.

Current Trauma Reports. The rehabilitation of individuals with lower extremity injury is a common but complex problem for the surgical and rehabilitative teams. Basic science tenets of fracture and soft tissue reconstruction and healing guide postoperative weight-bearing and range of motion protocols. In addition to the physiological complications associated with the injury severity, patient outcomes are often influenced by other factors such as patient compliance, pain, depression, and the negative effects of immobility. As a result, novel rehabilitative protocols to include early weight bearing, continuous passive motion, psychosocial intervention, and multimodal pain management are becoming more popular to facilitate rehabilitation and improved patient outcomes.
