Salter-Harris Fracture: What Is It, Types, Treatment, and ...
A Salter-Harris fracture refers to a injury, or fracture, through the growth plate of a long bone. Examples of a long bone are the tibia in the arm and the humerus in the leg. Present in children, the growth plate, also called the physeal or epiphyseal plate, is an area of cartilage that actively develops into new bone, increasing the bone’s length until the child stops growing around the ages of 14 to 18.
