Greenstick Fractures

Greenstick Fractures

A child's bones are more likely to bend than to completely break because they are more flexible than those of an adult. Greenstick fracture could be caused by this flexibility.

Effect of physical inactivity on major non-communicable diseases worldwide: an analysis of burden of disease and life expectancy

Global trends in antiretroviral resistance in treatment-naive individuals with HIV after rollout of antiretroviral treatment in resource
