Katagma osteon is Greek for Latin fractura ossium {"fracture of bones"}.


Greek κατάγμα /katágma/ "fragment; breakage; (medical) fracture" is a compound of the preposition κατά /katá/, strengthening the notion of the main word, + ἀγμός /agmós/ "fracture (of a bone)".

ὀστέον /ostéon/ contracted ὀστοῦν /ostoûn/ means "bone", plural genitive is ὀστέων /ostéōn/ contracted ὀστῶν /ostôn/.

κατάγμα ὀστέων /katágma ostéōn/ means "fracture of bones".
