comminuted (splintered) and misaligned fractures


Explanation:
The USES dictionary unfornately is available only from English, so I looked under "fracture" and worked backwords. In the Dompé (Italian) I found that "comminuta" and "pluriframmentaria" are used as synonims, so "comminuted" was fairly easy to spot. For the other one, no luck on the dictionaries. I found various sites talking about fractures were the bone was "well-aligned," so...

Hope this helps,

Floriana
