Femoral Neck Fractures – Trauma – Orthobullets

Time to union was calculated from the surgery date to the healing date. The advantage is that the patient can mobilize without having to wait for fmur. She returns for her first follow-up visit one week later following another fall and now complains of severe hip pain. Further, severity of a subcapital fracture is graded by the Garden classification of hip fractures. Yet, the rotational instability of trochanteric fractures had not been frankly reported. Some authors have addressed this problem, and different solutions have been described, such as the use of a trochanteric stabilising plate [ 15 ], valgus osteotomy [ 5 ] and augmentation of the fracture by use of the cement [ ffemur16 ].

Outra fractura transcervical fechada. Archived from the original on 13 October However, because basicervical fractures have greater instability than stable intertrochanteric fractures [ 3914 ], poor functional outcome may be expected when the DHS is used alone [ 71419 ]. About Blog Go ad-free.

Fixation of basicervical and related fractures

Elsayed Ibraheem Elsayed Massoud. Garden Classification based on AP radiographs and does not consider lateral or sagittal plane alignment.

Principles Arthroplasty for femoral neck fractures. The majority of hip fractures are the result of a fall, particularly in the elderly. Femoral neck fractures are a subset of proximal femoral fractures.

Timing and type of fixation of ipsilateral femoral neck and shaft fractures. An additional osteotomy of fgactura femoral neck is fe required transcegvical obtain correct neck length and to fit the flange of the prosthesis if there is one. However, walking ability was regained at five months. Hemiarthroplasty is a less complicated operation, and provides generally satisfactory results for less active patients. Essential Orthopaedics and Trauma, 5th edition.

The DHS and derotation screw DRS combination comprises a multiplicity of the screws, usually required for rotational stability of the neck fractures and sliding capacity, which is required for controlled impaction of trochanteric fractures. When considering the biomechanics of hip fracturesit is fractuar to examine the mechanical loads the hip experiences during low energy falls.


In the event of failure, the surgery may be redone, or changed to a total hip replacement. Other closed transcervical fracture of neck of femur C National Inpatient Hospital Costs: Stable trochanteric fractra usually heal well, irrespective of the fixation device.

Adequate fixation was reported in 39 patients Due to this location, it represents an intermediate form between femoral neck, usually fixed with multiple cancellous screws, and the intertrochanteric fracture, fixed with a sliding screw device [ 722 ]. Elderly individuals are also predisposed to hip fractures due to many factors that can compromise proprioception and balance, including medications, vertigo, stroke, and peripheral neuropathy.

Entering A New Era: Inspect the acetabulum and remove small bone fragments. Log in Sign up. According to the criteria of Kyle et al.

Since new cementing techniques have been introduced, the frmur results of the cemented prosthesis have been considerably improved. Trochanteric fractures are not alike. Fermoral neck fracture in older patient: L7 – years in practice.
