BACKGROUND: Here, we assessed the prognostic value of the early sliding length (ESL) for predicting the risk of non-union after internal fixation of femoral neck fractures (FNFs) by Dual SC Screws (DSCS). METHODS: A retrospective analysis of 86 patients with intra-capsular FNFs was performed. They underwent osteosynthesis by DSCS at our institution between 2008 and 2013 with a minimum follow-up duration of 6 months. Preoperative displacement, fracture reduction quality, ESL of screws at 2 weeks postoperatively, and correlation of non-union with the ESL of screws were evaluated...

INTRODUCTION: Total hip arthroplasty (THA) is a good option as a salvage procedure after failed treatment of proximal femur fracture. The anatomy of the proximal femur, however, makes this surgery complicated and challenging. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the radiographic and clinical outcomes of THA after failed treatment of proximal femur fractures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively analysed 50 consecutive THAs (42 women, 8 men; mean age 77 years) after failed treatment of a proximal femur fracture...

BACKGROUND: Non-union is one of the devastating complications of fracture neck of femur. Though a very rarely encountered entity in a toddler (1-3 years paediatric age group), non-united femoral neck fractures are reported in developing countries because of mismanagement by quacks and delay in referrals. For operative treatment, many different procedures have been described, including close/open reduction and internal fixation using K-wires, cannulated screws, fibula or nails. There is no evidence in the literature that one or other implant influences the rate of postoperative complications, such as avascular femoral head necrosis or coxa vara...

BACKGROUND: Femoral neck fractures typically occur as a result of high-energy mechanisms among non-geriatric patients. Complications, including femoral neck shortening, non-union, and avascular necrosis, are relatively common after the internal fixation of this fracture pattern. These complications have serious effects on young patients. The Pauwels classification, which is the first biomechanical classification for femoral neck fractures, is still frequently used to determine and prescribe the appropriate treatment for femoral neck fractures...

INTRODUCTION: There were higher rates of revision, complication, non-union, delayed union, and poorer functional outcomes reported in super-aged patients of undisplaced femoral neck fractures treated with internal fixation. Therefore, we designed this randomized comparative study aiming to compare the effectiveness and long-term follow-up results of hemiarthroplasty (HA) with that of multiple cannulated screws (MCS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eligible participants were randomly assigned into two groups for different methods of operation (hemiarthroplasty group and internal fixation group)...

Femoral neck stress fractures have been described in military recruits and athletes. Early recognition and aggressive treatment are important, as femoral neck stress fractures have a high potential for complications and even uncomplicated fractures require an extensive course of rehabilitation. Tension-side (superolateral) stress fractures of the femoral neck are at high risk for complications such as displacement, non-union and avascular necrosis, and need to be treated surgically, while compression-side (inferomedial) fractures can be treated conservatively...

UNLABELLED: Femoral-neck stress fractures are relatively rare and may present as sports-related injuries. The presentation is variable, and prompt diagnosis facilitates the earliest return to pre-morbid functional activity levels. Delayed detection may precipitate femoral non-union or avascular necrosis, resulting in long-term functional deficit. AIMS: We describe the clinical, diagnostic and therapeutic approach of a femoral-neck stress fracture that occurred in a 28-year-old female recreational runner...

BACKGROUND: This study evaluated the clinical results of a new implant in the internal fixation of undisplaced femoral neck fractures. METHOD: Irrespective of their age, 149 patients with undisplaced (Garden I and II) femoral neck fractures were included in a prospective multicentre clinical cohort study and were treated by internal fixation by means of the Dynamic Locking Blade Plate (DLBP). The mean age was 69 years and the follow-up at least one year. RESULTS: The DLBP fixation resulted in 6 out of 149 failures caused by AVN (2x), non-union (2x), loss of fixation (3x) or combination of these...

Introduction Internal fixation of undisplaced intracapsular femoral neck fractures with cannulated hip screws is a widely accepted surgical technique, despite reported failure rates of 12%-19%. This study determined whether preoperative serum albumin levels are linked to fixation failure. Methods We retrospectively reviewed 251 consecutive undisplaced intracapsular femoral neck fracture patients treated with cannulated hip screws in a district general hospital. Preoperative albumin levels were measured, and the fixation technique, classification and posterior tilt on radiography assessed...

Arthroscopic over-resection of the head-neck junction during the treatment of a cam deformity can be a devastating complication and is difficult to treat. Large defects of the femoral head-neck junction (FHNJ) increase the risk of femoral neck fracture and can also affect hip biomechanics. We describe a case of an iatrogenic defect of the FHNJ due to excessive bone resection, and a previously non-described treatment using iliac crest autograft to restore femoral head-neck sphericity and hip joint stability...

INTRODUCTION: Delayed union and non-union of displaced femoral neck fractures remains a difficult clinical problem for orthopaedic surgeons. In the physiologically young patient, every effort should be made to preserve the native hip joint. We present two cases of ununited femoral neck fractures in young adults who were successfully treated with low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) and showed satisfactory results. PRESENTATION OF CASE 1: A 41-year-old woman was involved in a motor vehicle crash and was diagnosed with displaced femoral neck fracture...

BACKGROUND: Recently percutaneous vertebroplasty (PVP) was frequently performed for treatment of osteoporotic vertebral fractures (VFs). It is widely accepted that new compression fractures tend to occur adjacent to the vertebral bodies, typically within a month after PVP. To determine the risk factors among several potential predictors for de novo VFs following PVP in patients with osteoporosis. METHODS: We retrospectively screened the clinical results of 88 patients who had been treated by PVP...

Fractures of the hip are rare injuries in children, accounting for less than 1 % of all pediatric fractures. Compared with other pediatric skeletal injuries, hip fractures are associated with high complication rates and poor outcomes, most commonly osteonecrosis, as well as non-union and malunion. Although significant trauma is the most common reason of the separation of upper femoral epiphysis, furthermore some cases were reported after seizures. To our knowledge, there is no previous publication in the literature that reports the results of delayed reduction and fixation of transepiphyseal separation of the proximal femoral epiphysis...
