For those who suffer a complex bone fracture that requires the insertion of stainless steel pins in the bone while it heals, there is a new lightweight, non-itchy alternative to covering the fracture in a heavy cast. In certain cases, a metal rod on a frame can be used to connect the pins and keep the fracture rigid and in proper position while healing. The procedure is performed under anesthesia in the operating room. According to Pennsylvania Hospital orthopedic surgeon Arthur R. Bartolozzi, the procedure may be a treatment option for a complex wrist fracture or an open fracture when the bone of an arm or leg pierces the skin.

DENNY HAMLIN suffered a compression fracture in his lower spine during a last-lap crash Sunday in Fontana, Calif., while racing for the win against former teammate Joey Logano, and Joe Gibbs Racing gave no indication Monday how long its driver could be sidelined. "I just want to go home," Hamlin tweeted from a hospital in Southern California. He later posted a photo of himself giving a thumbs-up and appeared to be wearing a back brace. The team said he had what is called an L1 compression fracture; essentially, the first vertebra in the lumbar section of his spine collapsed.

Think of a rubber band. It can stretch and stretch - but then you s-t-r-e-t-c-h it too far and it breaks. The body's bones work the same way. When they are called on to endure too much stress, they crack. "Stress fractures," the medical term for such injuries, are faced by runners and other athletes. "We've seen a rash of stress fractures in the tibia (shin bone) and the pelvis in the past few weeks," said Dr. Phillip Marone, M.D., director of the Thomas Jefferson University Sports Medicine Center, 9th and Sansom streets, which opened four months ago. In recent days, Marone has treated shin stress fractures in a 15-year-old soccer player and in two recreational runners, ages 21 and 26. A 40-year-old attorney, also a runner, came in with a stress fracture of his pelvis.

In a sport where a muscle twinge can put a player out of commission for weeks, it's hard to imagine a guy fracturing his skull and not missing a day. That's just what Gene Schall did. The first baseman, who is hoping to win a job as Gregg Jefferies' backup, has played in all three of the Phillies' exhibition games, including yesterday's 6-5 loss to the Texas Rangers at Jack Russell Stadium. Schall drew a walk and, representing the tying run, was left on base as the Phillies' ninth-inning rally fell short.

His condition will be reevaluated then, just before Villanova opens its season on Thanksgiving Day in the Great Alaska Shootout in Anchorage. Haynes said last night that he felt pain one day in practice, but didn't realize he had a fracture until a team trainer suggested X-rays.

Zach Eflin pitched the last few weeks with a fracture in his right foot, which was not discovered until Friday and will likely be enough to shut down the rookie pitcher for the rest of the season. The stress fracture was discovered when Eflin had an MRI on his knees. He was placed on the disabled list last week with tendinitis in both knees. Eflin said he had received treatment for the foot, not knowing it was fractured. He does not know how the injury occurred. Manager Pete Mackanin said, "It's unlikely that he will be back this year.

Carson Wentz suffered a hairline fracture in his ribs in the Eagles' preseason opener Thursday. There is no exact timetable for his return, but the team hopes to have Wentz back "before the end of the preseason. " Wentz felt discomfort and soreness early in practice on Saturday.

Wentz hurt his ribs when he was hit there by Buccaneers linebacker Micah Awe on his second-to-last play in the fourth quarter.

The 14 universities in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education have separate nonprofit foundations that act on their behalf to raise money from donors. But that relationship at Mansfield University in north-central Pennsylvania - the second-smallest school in the system - has soured in a big way. The dispute between the Mansfield University Foundation and university leaders became so acrimonious earlier this year that the foundation's three-person staff was forced out of its campus office with just four days' notice.

If overcoming adversity leads to success, center Cole Bardreau should have a solid NHL career. Signed by the Flyers as a free agent last year, the 5-foot-10, 193-pound Bardreau - who fractured his neck while playing for Cornell in 2013 and was nearly paralyzed - looks like he has a future as a scrappy third- or fourth-line player. "He's tenacious, irritating, hard-working," general manager Ron Hextall said after watching Bardreau at the Flyers' development camp in Voorhees the other day. "Plays hard and plays physical.

His leg injury kept him from working out in the preseason.

Maikel Franco's recovery from a bruised left wrist had stalled, so the Phillies sent their third baseman for an MRI exam Monday. The test revealed a small fracture - a diagnosis last week's X-ray missed - that could prematurely end the 22-year-old's promising rookie campaign. The Phillies do not believe the injury will affect Franco in the future. The fracture is of the "very small, non-displaced" variety, according to general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. Franco is wearing a splint and will continue to do so for about two to three weeks.

A WEEK EARLIER, when Maikel Franco blitzed out of the batter's box in pain, dropped to the ground behind home plate at Chase Field, and rolled around in considerable pain, it looked like a fastball from Jeremy Hellickson had broken the rookie third baseman's hand. But an X-ray that night (Aug. 11 in Arizona) came back negative and Franco was hopeful he would return to the Phillies' lineup over the weekend in Milwaukee. That never happened. So when Franco and the Phillies returned home on Sunday night, after he missed four straight games, they decided to seek a second opinion.
