Inverted triangle pattern with the inferior screw posterior to midline and central in the femoral neck.

Malunionhealing of the fracture in a distorted position, is very common. Thus, total hip arthroplasty is optimal treatment for such patients.

Postoperative management was individualised based on the quality of reduction obtained.

The fracture typically takes 3—6 months to heal. Previous studies recommended treating basicervical fractures as intertrochanteric fractures with the dynamic hip screw DHS [ 3722 ]. The mean time lag before sugary was 3.

It typically includes use of a femoral plug and pressurized injection of a more fluid cement. Inability to ambulate following the fall. The original proximal femoral transcergical prostheses were made of a single casting with a femoral stem attached to the femoral neck and head.


For appropriately selected patients, arthroplasty with either a hemi-arthroplasty or total hip replacement may be more successful.

Archived from the original on 26 April Patients were allowed to walk using crutches and toe touching until the absence of pain and a good callus had been observed on radiographs. If the prosthesis has a flange, the osteotomy must match this.

Early weight bearing may be safer with cement. Retrieved 23 April This page was last edited on 14 Decemberat Non-union was defined as the absence of bridging bone at the fracture line transcergical follow-up at six months, including transcervicall displacements [ 1617 ].

Biomechanical aspects of the repair of intertrochanteric fractures.

Hip fracture

Problems such as pressure sores and chest infections are all increased by immobility. Intracapsular fractures of the hip.

Currently, only 1 in 4 patients after a hip fracture receives treatment and work up for osteoporosis, the underlying cause of most of the fractures. Journal of the American Geriatrics Society. For hemiarthroplasty, the acetabular labrum should be preserved, as it improves stability.

There were no immediate post-operative complications, and she was progressed to full weight bearing three months after surgical fixation. In this case the original femoral stem was retained, with a replacement of its head and neck for total hip arthroplasty. So-called bicentric or bipolar prostheses have a smaller inner ball that articulates within a larger head component that fits the acetabulum. Placement of the DRS was considered adequate in 40 patients Author information Article notes Copyright and License information Disclaimer.


Femoral neck fracture | Radiology Reference Article |

Essential Orthopaedics and Trauma, 5th edition. It should also allow early weight bearing. Plan carefully according to the prosthetic design. Injury or Poisoning T Initial post-operative radiographs, and radiographs taken 3 months post-op revealed anatomic reduction of the fracture with no shortening.

Femoral Neck Fractures – Trauma – Orthobullets

The latter affects both leg length soft-tissue tension, and hip stability. Skeletal transcervival may be considered for long term treatment. Make sure that cement debris are removed first and that soft tissues are retracted. Use a trial head and neck component to confirm range of motion and stability.
