Hemiarthroplasty or Internal Fixation for Displaced Femoral Neck Fractures

An estimated 1.6 million patients sustain a hip fracture every year, about half of these are intracapsular femoral neck fractures. A femoral neck fracture is a life changing event for any ...

Hemiarthroplasty or Internal Fixation for Displaced Femoral Neck Fractures - 5 Years Follow up

An estimated 1.6 million patients sustain a hip fracture every year, about half of these are intracapsular femoral neck fractures. A femoral neck fracture is a life changing event for any ...

Safety Study of Femoral Neck Fracture System

The purpose of this study is to assess the reoperation rate of fractures that have occurred at the neck of the femur that are treated with the CONQUEST FN Femoral Neck Fracture System. The...

Comparison Study of 3-4-Screws-Internal Fixation With Multi-Screw-System Targon FN for Femoral Neck Fracture

The purpose of this study is to compare between two methods of internal fixation, the 3-4 parallel screws or the Targon FN implant in gardens type 1-2 or Pauwels type 1-2 femoral neck frac...

Dynamic Internal Fixation of Femoral Neck Fractures

Evaluation of dynamic Plate-Screw-Systems for internal fixation after femoral neck fractures. Open Registry for Comparison of 1-screw-systems (DHS) with multi-screw-system Targon FN.

Diagnosis and Management of Ipsilateral Femoral Neck and Shaft Fractures.

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...

Biomechanics of Femoral Neck Fractures and Implications for Fixation.

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 o...

Ideal length of thread forms for screws used in screw fixation of nondisplaced femoral neck fractures.

It is common practice when placing cannulated screws within the femoral head when treating femoral neck fractures to avoid the thread-forms from crossing the fracture line. Despite the widespread use ...

Technologies for Young Femoral Neck Fracture Fixation.

Fixation of young femoral neck fractures represents a challenge in the field of orthopaedic trauma surgery. Conventional methods, including cannulated screw and sliding hip screw constructs, have been...

Risk factors for cut-out after internal fixation of trochanteric fractures in elderly subjects.

Proximal femoral fracture is associated with severe morbidity and mortality and high socioeconomic costs. The main mechanical complication of internal fixation in trochanteric fracture is lag-screw cu...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

A groin hernia occurring inferior to the inguinal ligament and medial to the FEMORAL VEIN and FEMORAL ARTERY. The femoral hernia sac has a small neck but may enlarge considerably when it enters the subcutaneous tissue of the thigh. It is caused by defects in the ABDOMINAL WALL.

Implantable fracture fixation devices attached to bone fragments with screws to bridge the fracture gap and shield the fracture site from stress as bone heals. (UMDNS, 1999)

The use of metallic devices inserted into or through bone to hold a fracture in a set position and alignment while it heals.

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).
