Fracture femur is a common injury which is associated with excruciating pain. Positioning for neuraxial blocks is always challenging because even slight overriding of the fracture ends is ...
Hip fractures are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the elderly with over 30,000 hip fractures occuring in Canada annually and over 1300 in Saskatchewan. The estimated cost assoc...
Hip Fracture is a common orthopedic emergency in elderly people, which causes moderate to severe pain. Until now, different methods of pain treatment have been used, including pain-killer ...
Few studies have reported the efficacy of adding dexmedetomidine to bupivacain for fascia illiaca compartment black. Comparison of dexmedetomidine and bupivacaine with bupivacaine alone on...
The fascia iliaca compartment block (FICB) is a regional block that anesthetizes the femoral, obturator, and lateral femoral cutaneous nerves around the hip. The purpose of this study is t...
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 proxi...
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 cephalome...
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 frac...
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 vi...
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. Aware...
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 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 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.
Fractures of the femur.
Fractures of the skull which may result from penetrating or nonpenetrating head injuries or rarely BONE DISEASES (see also FRACTURES, SPONTANEOUS). Skull fractures may be classified by location (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, BASILAR), radiographic appearance (e.g., linear), or based upon cranial integrity (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, DEPRESSED).
