Femoral Neck Fractures

Author information Article notes Copyright and License information Disclaimer. If hemiarthroplasty is planned, the femur is prepared, an appropriate femoral head and fracura size is chosen and confirmed with trial components, and then the definitive prosthesis is inserted. The mean sliding distance was 5. Basicervical fracture is a fracture through the base of femoral neck at its junction with the intertrochanteric region [ 3 ]. Which is the most appropriate next step in management?


The proper AP and lateral radiograph was sufficient for detection of the relation between the head—neck fragment and trochanters [ 22 ]. Hence, we feel that the DRS can control inferior translation of the proximal fragment. Under firm pressure the acetabular prosthesis is inserted fraxtura an anatomical position and the cement is allowed to harden.

After reduction, check stability and soft-tissue tension.

Fixation of basicervical and related fractures

Internal fixation can be performed with multiple pins, intramedullary hip screw IHMScrossed screw-nails or compression with transcervicall dynamic screw and plate 9. Rehabilitation has been proven to increase daily functional status. A more appropriate neck length may improve stability. Pain is also significant, and can also result in immobilization, so patients are encouraged to become mobile as soon as possible, often with the assistance of physical therapy.

However, management tranacervical these fractures is a continuing challenge because of difficulty in achieving stable fixation with conventional metal implants. Inverted triangle pattern with the inferior screw posterior to midline and adjacent to the calcar. Fraktur eines unspezifischen intrakapsulaeren Abschnitts des Oberschenkelhalses, geschlossen. Archived from the original on transcervival October The hip joint is unique in that it experiences combined mechanical loads.


X-ray showing a suspected compressive subcapital fracture as a radiodense line.

transcerical Trochanteric fractures are not alike. Functional outcome Farctura who used one cane increased from six Place the leg in normal extension. In addition to the selected prosthesis, possible alternatives should be available in the operating room.

Head size, however, is determined by the preoperatively selected acetabular component. The femoral shaft—neck angle femug measured at the final assessment. The canal can be shaped so that the prosthetic stem fits snugly, but without great stability press-fit.

As a general rule, internal fixation is recommended for young, otherwise, fit patients with small risk for AVN. Manual of internal fixation: Many surgeons prefer an anterior or anterolateral approach for arthroplasty, with the patient positioned laterally or supine.

DeLee JC Fractures and dislocations of the hip. Plan carefully according to the prosthetic design. You can also scroll through stacks with your mouse wheel or the keyboard arrow keys.

After screw insertion, the plate was fixed to the shaft. The most common causes of weakness in bone are:.
