The intraoperatively rotational control of femoral shaft fractures treated with a closed intramedullary interlocking nailing is a challenging problem. A novel surgical technique that includes respective insertions of guidewires into the proximal and distal femur under the guidance of a 2-dimensional fluoroscopy-based navigation system and the measurements of the intersection angle subtended by the proximal and distal guidewires with the smartphone positional software has been designed to provide intraoperatively quantitative parameters of femoral rotation deformation...

BACKGROUND: Pathological fracture of the proximal femur is a main cause of cancer patients losing their ability to walk. Although both osteosynthetic devices (predominantly intramedullary nails) and prosthetic replacement have been widely performed for treatment, controversies exist regarding which procedure should be used for the various conditions. In order to decide the eligibility criteria of a planned randomized prospective study about the treatment of pathological fractures of the proximal femur, we assessed the factors affecting the selection of operative procedures using questionnaires sent to the members of the Bone and Soft Tissue Tumor Study Group (BSTTSG) of the Japan Clinical Oncology Group (JCOG)...

PURPOSE: Good results of the cephalomedullary nails have been reported in proximal femoral fractures recently. Based on length of nails and shape of screws fixed in a femoral head for proximal fragment fixation, the proper nail length was in dispute. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical and radiological results of a long cephalomedullary hip nail for the treatment of comminuted subtrochanteric femoral fractures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-one consecutive patients with severe subtrochanteric femoral fractures who had undergone intramedullary fixation using long-PFNA II between March 2010 and March 2013 were followed-up for over 12 months...

INTRODUCTION: Fractures of the Intertrochanteric (IT) region are some of the most common fractures encountered by an orthopedic surgeon in his lifetime. With increase in life expectancy, the incidence of these fractures is also increasing. By 2040, the incidence of these fractures is expected to double. Unstable IT fractures are a major cause of concern in the elderly due to the associated increase in morbidity and mortality. AIM: The purpose of this study was to compare the intraoperative and postoperative parameters using the Dynamic Hip Screw (DHS), the Cemented Bipolar Hemiarthroplasty (BH) and the Proximal Femoral Nail (PFN) for the management of unstable IT fractures...

BACKGROUND: Proximal Femoral shaft fractures are commonly associated with marked blood loss which can lead to postoperative acute anemia and some other complications. Tranexamic acid (TA) is an antifibrinolytic medication that reduces intra-and postoperative blood loss and transfusion requirements during some elective surgeries. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of intravenous Tranexamic acid (TA) on intraoperative blood loss and a subsequent need for transfusion in patients who were undergoing surgery for femoral shaft fractures in trauma setting...

BACKGROUND: Antegrade intramedullary (IM) nailing for skeletally immature femur fractures can damage the capital femoral epiphysis blood supply, leading to avascular necrosis (AVN) of the femoral head. Reported AVN rates are 2% for piriformis entry and 1.4% for trochanteric entry. None of previous reports described IM lengthening nails for limb lengthening procedures. We have used self-lengthening telescopic nails with a proximal Herzog bend and standard trochanteric entry for femoral lengthening in children...

An 85-year-old woman developed severe swelling and pain in the proximal thigh after internal fixation of an intertrochanteric fracture of the femur with a hip nail. In order to identify the causes and determine the effective treatment, angiography was performed. The results of the angiography revealed a pseudoaneurysm of a branch of deep femoral artery. Endovascular embolization was used to treat the pseudoaneurysm. After reviewing all possible causes, we found a mistake in insertion of a guide wire for hip nail...

The ideal implant for the treatment of an unstable intertrochanteric femoral fracture is still a matter of discussion. The aim of this systematic review is to conduct a network meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing clinical outcomes between dynamic hip screws (DHS), Medoff sliding plating, percutaneous compression plating (PCCP), proximal femoral nails (PFN), Gamma nails and less invasive stabilization system fixation in femoral trochanteric fractures in the elderly. These clinical outcomes consist of total intra-operative time, intra-operative fluoroscopy time, intra-operative blood loss, blood component transfusion, length of hospital stay, postoperative general complications, wound complications, late complications and reoperation rates...

OBJECTIVES: Although both clinical and biomechanical studies suggest that cephalomedullary implants have a mechanical advantage over extramedullary implants, a high rate of complications or implant failure remains in elderly patients with osteoporosis. In an attempt to address some of these challenges, new implants with improved designs named proximal femoral nail antirotation II (PFNA II) and Zimmer natural nail (ZNN) were developed for elderly patients. Although the PFNA II reportedly has good clinical outcomes, it is unclear which implant achieves better safety and efficacy for treating intertrochanteric hip fractures...
