At least with a break, normally a steelrod is inserted that actually strengthens the bone in the long term. Remember reading Barlow saying something like that. ACL has to be the most complicated, given that it's not always going to prevent another tear such as Morabito and Menzel. Plus the confidence would be shot with your knee given it's so fragile as compared to a broken leg that's normally a 'one-off'. Paul George in NBA had a horrific break but 1-2 years later he is even better then what he was before.
Don't know if inserting a rod is normal practice with a fracture where everything has basically stayed in place.Our resident medicos would know.
But we just don't know about the break itself.
The club hasn't said much that I've read,apart from the fact that's he's had the surgery and Weber saying it's gone well and he's at home and will get back into some form of training in the next week or two.
He's young and strong as a Moose so they've got to be big factors in his favour.
Alex was getting around on crutches after the game where as Barlow was into an ambulance and straight off to hospital. Barlow had a compound fracture with the bottom half of the leg just hanging. Horrific sight and something I will never forget. I have never been able to watch a replay.
Probably the craziest thing Ive seen at the footy. When he went to walk sheesh.
Watched Mick's on TV and walked out of the house as he was getting up!
Seen three of them in real life...they don't get prettier.Fib, tib and compound is the nastiest end of the scale..and Micky's is as good as it gets in terms of returning to full fitness.
I'm very optimistic about Moose playing games next season.However without knowing anything about the break it's simply optimism.
I know what you mean. I was sitting on the boundary when Voss broke his. I can remember the sound urgh.
Lot of "Dr Google" crap in this thread that is confusing everyone
The bottom line is this. Barlow did not have a compound fracture, but it was high in the leg, which is generally worse than Pearce's location. All things being equal, Pearce's recovery will be shorter and less complicated
End of story
Haven't googled anything and if my post suggested I thought Mick's was a compound I didn't mean it to.
Mick snapped fib and tib and both were displaced and waving about in the wind.We've been told Alex has fractured/broken tib only which is obviously different in kind.
Just on the strengthening thing - the bone heals stronger. My concern would be about what happens if the leg was to have a force strong enough to break it with a rod in it - no chance of a clean break.
The rod is titanium (mine was bright green - got it taken out and I asked the doc if I could keep it).
Why does whether it's high or low matter? Is higher worse because there is more surrounding muscle ie calf?
In simplistic terms the force required to fracture the upper part of the bone is more significant, and it has a higher risk of nonunion. Plus as you say the soft tissue injury is generally greater
Wasn't referring to your post scon
It would though be highly unlikely that Pearce did his tib alone, based on what we saw
Why Alex Pearce, it just had to be one of our most promising young players. Why couldnt it have been suban.
Sorry guys, hate to be the bearer of bad news but I'm afraid I've stumbled across a very disheartening update re AP.
Sitting in the airport lounge in Melbourne on our way back to Perth after watching the boys epic win on Saturday, casually flicking through the Age, and spotted this...
* Warning same crumpet news in digital form.
Forget this year and get him right for 2018.
Good alert. Letting us know it's from hagdorn, but also because of the content. Not every reader is going to be able to stomach the infected screws and whatnot. The poor kid.
Alex also posted this on his instagram, looks in good nick.
His arms don't look like toothpicks anymore! Hope it's a normal calendar month before his return, and not a Bennell month (4 weeks, 3-4, 3, 2-3, 2, 1-2, 1, 1, 1, 1, test, test, TBC)
Article says Bennell's a fortnight away from WAFL.
It's lucky we haven't lost him to a modelling career. Sheesh Alex is one good looker
A lot of babes on our team
