What are the types of Post Traumatic Edema?

Post Traumatic Edema is a condition that affects the body when it has experienced trauma. There are two types of post traumatic edema: acute and chronic.

Acute Post Traumatic Edema

Acute post traumatic edema is a temporary swelling that occurs immediately after an injury, typically lasting for about 24 hours before subsiding.

It can be caused by injuries to bones and other soft tissues, such as muscles and nerves. This type of edema is usually accompanied by pain and tenderness at the site of injury.

Chronic Post Traumatic Edema

Chronic post traumatic edema occurs weeks or months after an injury, with symptoms lasting longer than three days after the initial trauma occurred.

Chronic post traumatic edema may be caused by damaged blood vessels or nerves around a joint or bone, which prevents them from pumping out excess fluid properly.

This type of edema can also occur when there is damage to muscle tissue near joints throughout the body (such as in cases where surgery has been performed on one limb but not another).
