Functional Anatomy

What is the difference between a displaced and non-displaced fracture? In a displaced fracture, the bone breaks into two or more sections and shifts position so that the two ends are not on a straight line. In a non-displaced fracture, the bone cracks all of the way through or either part but does not move thereby maintaining its proper alignment. Define as related to fracture healing: Non-Union: This refers to a situation where a broken bone fails to heal. Mal-Union: This refers to a situation where the fracture heals with the two ends of the bone not lined up correctly. Delayed Union: This refers to a situation where the fracture takes longer than usual to heal. What is Open Reduction vs. Closed...

Bacterial Morphology and Gram Staining

Student’s Name Professor’s Name Course Date Bacterial Morphology and Gram Staining Introduction Gram staining technique is a biological lab method used to classify two distinct groups of bacteria. The differentiation is based on the components of the bacterial cell wall.
