Summary of "The association between anterior femoroacetabular impingement and femoral neck fractures: An observational study."

The impact between acetabulum and femoral neck is another possible mechanism of femoral neck fracture.Direct trauma of the greater trochanter may not be able to fully explain the mechanism underlying femoral neck fracture. In this study, we sought to investigate whether anterior femoroacetabular impingement are associated with femoral neck fractures.A total of 36 patients with femoral neck fracture who had undergone total hip arthroplasty or hemiarthroplasty were included in this study. These patients were divided into 2 groups: labrum tear group and normal labrum group. Patients' age, gender, body mass index, muscle injury, injury pattern, trauma severity, femoral head-neck offset, femoral head-neck ratio, Cam deformity alpha angle, acetabular anteversion, femoral head diameter, acetabular index, cortical index, hip axis length, and neck stem angle were recorded and analyzed. SPSS 18.0 software was used for statistical analyses.According to intraoperative findings, 22 patients exhibited a labrum tear. Magnetic resonance imaging examination revealed bone contusion on the anterolateral margin of the acetabulum with muscle damage surrounding the hip. Among 14 cases without a labrum tear, no bone contusion and obvious muscle injury were found on the anterolateral margin of the acetabulum. Notably, muscle injury, injury pattern, trauma severity and femoral head-neck offset differed significantly (P < .05) between labrum tear and normal labrum groups.Previous studies have focused more on direct lateral trauma. In this study, the impact between acetabulum and femoral neck is another possible mechanism besides lateral impact. Specifically, the abnormal anatomy of the hip, such as femoral head-neck offset, may promote the fracturing process.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Fractures of the FEMUR HEAD; the FEMUR NECK; (FEMORAL NECK FRACTURES); the trochanters; or the inter- or subtrochanteric region. Excludes fractures of the acetabulum and fractures of the femoral shaft below the subtrochanteric region (FEMORAL FRACTURES).

Fractures of the short, constricted portion of the thigh bone between the femur head and the trochanters. It excludes intertrochanteric fractures which are HIP FRACTURES.

Fractures due to the strain caused by repetitive exercise. They are thought to arise from a combination of MUSCLE FATIGUE and bone failure, and occur in situations where BONE REMODELING predominates over repair. The most common sites of stress fractures are the METATARSUS; FIBULA; TIBIA; and FEMORAL NECK.

Hip deformity in which the femoral neck leans forward resulting in a decrease in the angle between femoral neck and its shaft. It may be congenital often syndromic, acquired, or developmental.

Disease involving the femoral nerve. The femoral nerve may be injured by ISCHEMIA (e.g., in association with DIABETIC NEUROPATHIES), nerve compression, trauma, COLLAGEN DISEASES, and other disease processes. Clinical features include MUSCLE WEAKNESS or PARALYSIS of hip flexion and knee extension, ATROPHY of the QUADRICEPS MUSCLE, reduced or absent patellar reflex, and impaired sensation over the anterior and medial thigh.
