Proximal femoral fragility fractures are common and result in significant morbidity and mortality along with a considerable socioeconomic burden. The goals of this article are to review relevant proximal femoral anatomy together with imaging, classification, and management of proximal femoral fragility fractures, and their most common complications. Imaging plays an integral role in classification, management and follow-up of proximal femoral fragility fractures. Classification of proximal femoral fragility...
Basicervical femoral neck fractures are challenging fractures in geriatric populations. The goal of this study was to determine whether compression hip screw (CHS) constructs are superior to cephalomedullary constructs for the treatment of basicervical femoral neck fractures.
Garden type I femoral neck fractures are incomplete stable fractures with impaction in valgus fractures that the question of whether there exists Garden type I femoral neck fracture is currently uncertain. There is still disagreement on the existence of the Garden type I fractures.
This study sought to compare the effects of proximal femoral nail anti-rotation (PFNA) and dynamic hip screw (DHS) helical blade treatments in patients with osteoporotic femoral intertrochanteric fractures.
We present a rare case of a previously healthy 16-year-old boy who sustained simultaneous bilateral femoral neck fractures after a single first-time seizure episode. He was diagnosed to have severe vitamin D deficiency and secondary hyperparathyroidism. Symptomatic hypocalcemia was the cause of seizures. Both fractures were treated surgically and united at 3 months. Bilateral femoral neck fractures after seizures are very rare, especially in children. Severe vitamin D deficiency may cause seizures and also ...
Ipsilateral femoral neck and shaft fractures typically occur as a result of high-energy trauma in young adults. Up to 9% of femoral shaft fractures will have an associated femoral neck fracture. Awareness of this association and the use of a protocolized approach to diagnosis and management can help prevent missed injuries and the associated complications of displacement, nonunion, and osteonecrosis. The femoral neck fracture is often vertically oriented and either nondisplaced or minimally displaced, and t...
The aim of this study was to compare the clinical and radiological results of InterTan nail and proximal femoral nail antirotation (PFNA) in the treatment of reverse intertrochanteric fractures (AO/OTA 31-A3). The study included a total of consecutive patients who presented at trauma centre with a reverse intertrochanteric fracture between in the last 7 years. Treatment was applied with PFNA in 33 patients and with InterTan nail in 36. Evaluation was made from the radiographs taken on postoperative day 1 an...
Young patients with femoral neck fractures are optimally treated with reduction and stable fixation, while patients over the age of sixty-five are often treated with arthroplasty. This study analyzes in-hospital outcomes associated with total hip arthroplasty, hip hemiarthroplasty and internal fixation for treatment of femoral neck fractures in patients aged 45-64.
Femoral neck stress fractures are overuse injuries with devastating consequences if not diagnosed and treated appropriately. The aim of this study was to retrospectively review femoral neck stress fractures using a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-based protocol and to identify imaging risk factors that could predict fracture progression requiring surgical intervention.
Femoral neck fractures in young patients are uncommon but are often associated with surgical challenges and complications. The quality of reduction, more than time to surgery, has the most impact on optimizing outcomes and function. There is no consensus in the best fixation construct for these fractures. Neck shortening and varus collapse are the most common challenges of current fixation options. Use of newer implants is being reported with cautious optimism, and further studies are needed. LEVEL OF EVIDE...
To compare the efficacy of two intertrochanteric fracture fixation devices in conferring mechanical stability to unstable intertrochanteric femur fractures.
Aim of this study was to investigate the incidence and extent of femoral shortening in non-geriatric patients after internal fixation of femoral neck fractures in relation to the clinical outcome at mid-term follow-up.
Femoral neck fractures in the physiologically young patient are challenging injuries to manage. A tenuous blood supply and the intrasynovial nature of the fracture create a challenging biological environment. To make matters worse, the biomechanics are equally problematic. Frequently, these fractures in younger populations are high Pauwel angle fractures that see considerable force, especially shear. These factors combine to make nonunion and avascular necrosis all too common. In the current study, we will ...
Fractures of the femoral neck can occur in young healthy individuals due to high loads occurring during motor vehicle accidents, impacts, or falls. Failure forces are lower if impacts occur sideways onto the greater trochanter as compared with vertical loading of the hip. Bone density, bone geometry, and thickness of cortical bone at the femoral neck contribute to its mechanical strength. Femoral neck fractures in young adults require accurate reduction and stable internal fixation. The available techniques...
To assess the potential impact of using cerclage cables or wires when undertaking fixation of unstable intertrochanteric and subtrochanteric fractures.
The ideal mode of fixation for patients with femoral neck fractures is not well defined in the current literature. This study describes the recent trends in surgical management of femoral neck fractures with an analysis on perioperative outcomes. The National Hospital Discharge Survey was used to identify femoral neck fractures in the United States between 1990 and 2007 (n = 1,155,960) treated with open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF), total hip arthroplasty (THA), or hemiarthroplasty (HA). Trends we...
Pipkin described femoral head fractures in the 1950s, but controversy still exists regarding indications for surgery and approaches for operative treatment of femoral head fractures. Clear indications for operative intervention include inability to reduce the hip with closed methods, a nonconcentric reduction, fracture fragments within the articulating surface of the hip, and associated injuries (acetabulum and femoral neck fractures) with their own indications for surgery. The anterior approach described b...
Minimal Effect of Implant Position on Failure Rates in Femoral Neck Fractures: Commentary on an article by Anne Marie Nyholm, MD, et al.: "Osteosynthesis with Parallel Implants in the Treatment of Femoral Neck Fractures. Minimal Effect of Implant Position on Risk of Reoperation".
to compare clinical, laboratory and densitometric data from patients with osteoarthrosis and femoral neck fractures.
In physiologically young patients with displaced femoral neck fractures, surgical treatment is aimed at achieving fracture union while preserving native hip anatomy and biomechanics. The intracapsular environment, tenuous vascular supply, and unfavorable hip biomechanics contribute to the high complication rates seen after osteosynthesis of these fractures. Conventional fixation methods for osteosynthesis of femoral neck fractures include multiple cancellous screws, fixed-angle dynamic implants, and fixed-a...
Young femoral neck fractures remain challenging fractures to treat. Reduction has repeatedly been shown to be the single most important determinant of patient outcome, and treating surgeons should do all they can to achieve anatomic reduction because this is an outcome variable within the surgeon's control. Whether an open or closed reduction is performed, we hope to provide the reader with reduction strategies when faced with this difficult fracture pattern. In addition, we hope to review indications and t...
Cephalomedullary nails are used for the treatment of hip fractures; however, there are few studies that allow identifying data on the complications of the use of these devices and the results in terms of restoration of the functionality of the patient.
We aimed to compare the clinical efficacy of three different internal fixation methods, i.e. proximal femoral locking compress plate (PF-LCP), proximal femoral nail antirotation (PFNA) and dynamic hip screw (DHS) system in intertrochanteric femur fracture.
Although most displaced femoral neck fractures of young patients can be repositioned successfully by closed reduction, there are still some can not repositioned successfully by this way and open reductions are required. This type of fracture was defined as irreducible displaced femoral neck fracture in this study. The purpose of this study was to introduce a new technique using anteromedial femoral neck plate with cannulated screws fixation by open reduction for the treatment of irreducible displaced femora...
WHAT THIS ARTICLE TELLS US THAT IS NEW: BACKGROUND:: Ambulatory hip arthroscopy is associated with postoperative pain routinely requiring opioid analgesia. The potential role of peripheral nerve blocks for pain control after hip arthroscopy is controversial. This trial investigated whether a preoperative fascia iliaca block improves postoperative analgesia.
