Traveling with plaster and after surgery
Air travel is a major hurdle for gypsophiles and freshmen. Traveling by bus, train or car, however, are rather harmless.
With plaster in the plane
Those who contract a bone fracture shortly before or during their vacation can experience problems with air travel. In the first days after a fracture, a flight is not possible. This is due to the other pressure conditions in the aircraft.
A guideline is a time window of about 48 hours. Those who contract a fracture while on holiday must postpone the return flight accordingly.
Precautions before the flight
In the first 7 days after the fracture, the gypsum should be longitudinally split by a subject expert and then closed again, as wounds due to the low air pressure on board expand and the close fitting gypsum can lead to circulatory disorders and tissue damage. The split plaster creates more space for this expansion.
Even if the gypsum has been worn for some time, a doctor should finally decide on airworthiness and precautionary measures.
Many airlines deny access to passengers with gypsum without a certificate. If you have to put your leg up because of the fracture, you may need to buy a second seat.
When can I fly after an operation??
Anyone who has just completed an operation should take a restrained approach to vacation planning.
Fly with implants
Anyone who has received implants made of metal – be it because of endoprostheses or plates and screws – will almost certainly trigger an alarm at the airport security checkpoint.
It is also often helpful to carry an X-ray image that illustrates the implant’s position in the body. Above all: Allow plenty of time for the security check.

Competence Centers for Mobility and Bone Construction
Our musculoskeletal system is designed for physical exercise and locomotion. These include tendons, muscles, joints and the spine. Diseases or injuries can not only restrict our mobility, but massively affect our mobility. Arthrosis is a typical example of this. We specialize in orthopedic diseases in our clinics in Schwabing, Bogenhausen, Neuperlach and Harlaching. In Schwabing especially on pediatric orthopedics.
Our work is characterized by the close cooperation with the Munich universities.
Every year, around 135,000 people receive inpatient care – from Munich and the region. In emergency medicine, the Munich Clinic is the No. 1 in the region. Over 40 percent of all emergencies in the state capital are recorded in the four emergency centers.
