The following is the Garden classification of femoral neck fractures: Type 1- inferior cortex is not completely broken. Type 2- cortex is broken but there is no angulation. Type 3- some displacement and rotation of the femoral head. Type 4- complete displacement. In addition, femoral neck fracture is classified by its location: 1. subcapita Fractures of the Proximal Femur! Intra- and Extracapsular fractures Greenspan 1992 7-27p.TIF.

Femoral fractures can be located at three different places: Femoral head fracture: Femoral head stress fractures are a common cause of hip pain in select populations. Chronic, repetitive activity that is common to runners and military recruits, predisposes these populations to femoral neck stress fractures and femoral head osteochondral fracture (1 ) • Mean 24.5 months f/u - No AVN - At 1-year follow-upmean Harris Hip Score was 95.8 (range, 84.7 to 100)., • Possible risk factors for posterior hip instability - Acetabular dysplasia - relative acetabular retroversion. Femoral neck fractures and peritrochanteric fractures are equally prevalent and make up over 90 percent of proximal femur fractures. The femoral neck is the most common location for a hip fracture
Angiogenic-inhibiting factors in synovial fluid - inhibit fracture repair Pressure of the hemarthrosis can exceed the diastolic blood pressure and, hence, embarrass the blood supply to the femoral head - intracapsular tamponade Epidemiology increased freq with age dementia malignancy chronic illness in young patients usually are caused by high.

oping avascular necrosis of the femoral head. However, caution is advised, as the anterior/posterior view does not consider a displacement that may only be visible on lateral X-ray (Coughlin, 2010). Garden stages 3 and 4 fractures are most likely to disrupt the blood supply to the femoral head. For patients with a displace - involves femoral head & neck from joint surface to intertrochanteric region - absence of focal subchondral defect to indicate etiology due to AVN or fracture - signal abnormality resolves over 3-6 months if followed with sequential MRI Fractures • MRI sensitive & specific for occult fracture detection - stress fractures Surgical Treatment of Femoral Neck Fracture. A fractured neck of the femur is always an emergency and reduction and fixation must be done in 24 hours to minimize the risk of adverse effects. The aims of the surgery are to: Achieve anatomical reduction. Restore blood supply to the head of the femur Because femoral head fractures result from a high energy mechanism of injury, apply The First Rule of Veterinary Medicine: a full trauma evaluation has to be carried out. Diagnosis. The key to diagnosis is to document the fracture on standard x-rays. If there is any concern of an acetabular fracture, a CT scan is necessary angle between vertical line through femoral head and line through fracture. helps to define fracture pattern stability. considered stable if the fracture line exits outside the weight bearing dome of the acetabulum. defined as > 45° on AP, obturator and iliac oblique views
To assess regional variations in the arterial and venous blood supply to the femoral head following displaced fracture of the femoral neck using dynamic contrast enhanced (DCE)‐MRI quadrant analysis. Materials and Methods. A total of 27 subjects with displaced femoral neck fractures were enrolled in the study Pediatric femoral shaft fractures: current and future treatment Femoral shaft fractures can occur in children of all ages. They account for 1.6% of all childhood fractures, and they lead to significant impact on the child and family . The treatment of these fractures can vary greatly depending on the age of the patient and the fracture pat-tern
Femoral Neck Fractures Approximately 50% of all hip frac-tures are at the femoral neck, typically due to a direct fall onto the greater tro-chanter.7 These fractures are classified based on the degree of displacement (Fig-ure 3), and this impacts the type of sur-gical fixation. The three major types of surgical fixation for this fracture patter If this fracture is seen in older dogs, particularly after minimal trauma, then incomplete ossification of the humeral condyle (IOHC) should be considered. Femur. Capital Physeal. Capital physeal femoral fractures are typically classified as Salter-Harris type I. Concurrent separation of the trochanteric physis can be seen in 11% to 15% of cases
A femoral neck fracture is a type of hip fracture of the thigh bone (femur) —just below the ball of the ball-and-socket hip joint. This type of fracture disconnects the ball from the rest of the femur. It often causes groin pain that worsens when you putting weight on the injured leg. Hip fractures are more common among the elderly, but they. Sub-capital hip fracture. On the frontal view, there is a step-off in the cortex superiorly (red arrow) while there is abnormal overlapping of the femoral head and neck (white arrows) due to impaction. On the lateral view, the same step-off can be seen (red arrow) as well as the impaction (white arrow). · Transcervical fractures Femoral Neck Fractures The femoral neck is the most common location for a hip fracture, accounting for 45% to 53% of hip fractures. Per 100,000 person years, approximately 27.7 femoral neck fractures occur in men and 63.3 occur in women. The femoral neck is the region of the femur bounded by the femoral head proximally and the greater and.
Femoral Head and Hip Fracture; Animated PowerPoint Slides of Hip Fracture. Maximize the use of illustrations. This included removing the femoral head, cabling the femur back together and inserting a prosthetic hip into the femur attaching a acetabular component and reinserting the hip into the pelvis Reconstruction nails have been designed for the treatment of femoral shaft fractures with ipsilateral femoral neck, intertrochanteric, and subtrochanteric fractures. These nails have proximal locking holes oriented to accommodate screw placement into the femoral neck and head (, Fig 32) (, 1-, 6)
Subchondral fracture of the femoral head is commonly observed in elderly patients with osteopenia. They can cause acute hip pain and resultant osteoarthritic changes in the affected hip joint. 1,2 Several reports have emphasized that subchondral fracture should be differentiated from osteonecrosis of the femoral head, since these two conditions might have similar clinical and radiological. Displaced femoral neck fractures are associated with a higher risk of avascular necrosis of the femoral head. 41,42 Therefore, these fractures are generally treated with arthroplasty in the elderly patients. 41,42 These options include total hip arthroplasty (THA) where both the femoral head and acetabulum are replaced or hemiarthroplasty (HA. Hip fractures are defined by their anatomic location (Figures 273-1 and 273-2 and Table 273-1) and classified as intracapsular (femoral head and neck) or extracapsular (trochanteric, intertrochanteric, and subtrochanteric). Treatment will vary considerably with fracture type (Table 273-2). + Background. Traumatic obturator dislocation of the hip joint associated with greater trochanter fracture is a rare injury. We used the lateral approach through the rectus abdominis to remove the femoral head dislocated into the obturator, and the posterolateral approach was used for reduction and internal fixation of the femoral greater trochanteric fracture and total hip replacement (THR)
Nonunion is a relatively rare, yet challenging problem after fracture of the femoral neck. Risk factors include verticality of the fracture line and presence of comminution of the posteromedial calcar, as well as quality of reduction. Treatment options consist of valgus intertrochanteric osteotomy versus arthroplasty. Treatment should be tailored to the individual patient, taking into account. TOMOFIX® Medial Distal Femur Plate Surgical Technique DePuy Synthes 1 INDICATIONS As part of the DePuy Synthes Trauma TOMOFIX Osteotomy System, the TOMOFIX Medial Distal Femur Plate is indicated for closed-wedge osteotomies, ﬁ xation of fractures, and malalignment caused by injury or disease, such as osteoarthritis of the medial distal femur Delayed union of a femoral shaft fracture can be managed effectively with exchange medullary nailing or lateral compression plating. An antegrade nail may be exchanged for a retrograde nail if necessary. The neglected femoral neck fracture in a patient with a viable femoral head is best managed with joint salvage Once fracture of the femoral head occurs, operative attempts to stabilize the femur usually fail. Disease usually progresses rapidly, requiring total joint replacement. View Media Gallery. Axial computed tomography scan in a patient with avascular necrosis. This image shows joint space narrowing, juxta-articular sclerosis, and osteophyte. Trauma to the hip joint can result in coxofemoral luxation, acetabular fractures, and fractures of the femoral head and neck. An acute often non-weight-bearing lameness results. Clinical examination findings for all of these conditions are pain and crepitation on manipulation of the hip joint and a reduction in the range of motion

The femoral neck is the weakest part of the femur, the largest bone in the skeleton. Neck of femur (NOF) fractures typically occur in the elderly, with a predominance for women (4:1). However, they can occur in young patients as a result of high-energy trauma. In 2011, approximately 80,000 hip fractures were treated in the United Kingdom Caitlin Kenney An X-ray of the pelvic area, showing an implant that has been used to replace the femoral head. The femoral head, also called the femur head, is a bony knob at the top of the femur, or thigh bone.This ball-like part of the femur articulates, or connects, with a cup-like indent in the pelvis, forming the hip joint Femur fracture in a child before walking age is suspicious for non-accidental trauma. Most common femur fracture type in a child is closed, transverse, and non-comminuted. Adolescents have adult-like mechanism for femur fracture (high energy) and associated injuries are common. Treatment varies by age, weight, and fracture pattern Excessive knee pivoting that causes a complete anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear may result in a subchondral compression fracture on the lateral femoral condyle after impacting the lateral tibial condyle. Because this mechanism is similar to the humeral head that has an impact on the glenoid during an anterior shoulder dislocation, such an osteochondral fracture can be considered.
• Salter I (S-lipped): This fracture line extends through the physis or within the growth plate- this means that the fracture is usually only broken cartilage • Slipped capital femoral epiphysis is a manifestation of type (• Demographics: • Usually younger children • Causes The femoral head receives arterial blood flow from an anastomosis of three sets of arteries: (1) the retinacular vessels, primarily from the medial circumflex femoral artery and, to a lesser extent, the lateral circumflex femoral artery; (2) terminal. branches of the medullary artery from the shaft of the femur; and (3) the artery of the. femoral headfemoral head Delayed presentation of displaced intracapsular Delayed presentation of displaced intracapsular transcervical fracture in young patient (> 48 to 72 transcervical fracture in young patient (> 48 to 72 hours)hours) Pathological fracture of femoral head or neckPathological fracture of femoral head or nec The most common locations for stress fractures are the tibia (23.6 percent), tarsal navicular (17.6 percent), metatarsal (16.2 percent), fibula (15.5 percent), femur (6.6 percent), pelvis (1.6.
Femoral neuropathy is a broad term that refers to any medical condition that causes femoral nerve damage. Common symptoms include numbness, weakness, or paralysis of the legs Hip fractures can be categorized by the anatomical location and the stability of the fracture (either stable or unstable based on likelihood of postoperative compromise). The hip joint capsule consists of the femoral head, as well as the fibrous tissue and the cartilage that surrounds it . However, to develop bilateral AVN of the femoral head without an associated fracture is most unusual, raising the hypothesis that FD itself may predispose to AVN Femoral osteotomy is a surgical procedure that is performed to correct specific deformities of the femur - the long bone in the upper leg - and the hip joint. Orthopedic surgeons perform the operation, which involves cutting the bone, in order to realign it and restore a more normal anatomy, thereby addressing or preventing problems related. Pediatric femoral fractures are injuries that may involve the proximal femur, the femoral shaft, or the distal femur. In the treatment of these injuries, it is important to keep in mind that pediatric femur fractures differ from adult femur fractures in several key respects (see below), and these differences affect management
Most femoral shaft fractures require surgery to heal. It is unusual for femoral shaft fractures to be treated without surgery. Very young children are sometimes treated with a cast. Most femur fractures are fixed within 24 to 48 hours. Sometimes it will be delayed until other life-threatening injuries or unstable medical conditions are stabilized Blood Supply to Femoral Head & Neck. The relative contribution of the medial and lateral femoral circumflex arteries to the vascularity of the head and neck of the femur: a quantitative MRI-based assessment. Intracapsular pressure and caput circulation in nondisplaced femoral neck fractures. Intraosseous pO2 in femoral neck fracture Click for pdf: Pediatric Fractures Introduction The anatomy and biomechanics of pediatric bone differ from that of adult bone, leading to unique pediatric fracture patterns, healing mechanisms, and management. In comparison to adult bone, pediatric bone is significantly less dense, more porous and penetrated throughout by capillary channels Introduction. A fractured neck of femur (NOF) is a very common orthopaedic presentation. Over 65,000 hip fractures each year are recorded in the UK and they are becoming increasingly frequent due to an aging population.. The mortality of a femoral neck fracture up to 30% at one year; consequently, these fractures require specialist care and, indeed, most orthopaedic units now have dedicated. Femoral Fracture Brace-Femoral Section. Ischial weight bearing, narrow M-L design for femoral shaft fractures and proximal tibial fractures requiring a long-leg orthosis.

Masui 2008;57:892-894 Approximately 300,000 hip fractures occur in the USA each year [1, 2] with 40-45% being in the trochanteric region [3, 4].In an effort to decrease the morbidity and the cost of treatment of these fractures, surgical techniques need to be optimized [5, 6].The unique anatomy and the occurrence of high varying forces in the trochanteric region of the femur are challenging and demand. The femoral neck connects the femoral head to the proximal portion of the femoral shaft and attaches to the intertrochanteric region ( figure 1 ). The term hip fracture is applied to fractures in any of these locations. Disruption of the blood supply to the head and neck of the femur can impair fracture healing in these structures ( figure 2.
Symptoms of Distal Femoral Growth Plate Fracture. A direct trauma impacting the knee/thigh produces acute pain in the knee. It becomes very painful to bend or straighten the knee. Movement of the knee is painful. Presence of tenderness above the knee and around the lower thigh bone. Instant swelling after the occurrence of fracture Case Study - Femoral Neck Fracture in a 79-Year-Old Woman. A 79-year-old woman presents to the emergency department (ED) with a chief complaint of a 3-day history of right hip pain. She only mildly twisted her right leg 3 days ago; she has since had increasing pain and difficulty walking. The pain is sharp and radiates down to her right knee One must look out for other associated injuries like acetabular fracture, femoral head fractures, femoral neurovascular injury, sciatic nerve injuries, intrapelvic injuries, femur and patella fracture in such high energy trauma.5 Such patients have to be screened as per the advanced trauma life support protocol and necessary radiographs must be. Blood supply to head and neck of femur. Posteriorly by branches of medial circumflex femoral artery (major part of blood supply) Both medial and lateral circumflex femoral arteries are branches of profunda femoris artery. It is a branch of obturator artery. It contributes a small but variable amount of blood supply extra-articular fractures in the trochanteric area (31-A), intra-articular fractures in the neckarea(31-B), and fractures of the femoral head (31-C) .

Results: Hip dislocations are commonly classified according to the direction of dislocation of the femoral head, either anterior or posterior, and are treated with specific techniques for reduction. Generally, closed reduction is the initial treatment method, usually occurring in the emergency room. Bigelow first described closed treatment of a dislocated hip in 1870, and since then many.

The hip joint is a common site for trauma in adults and damage to the hip may be associated with injuries to the rest of the pelvis, the femur, and the knee. This chapter describes a system of assessment to help interpret hip radiographs. Important anatomical considerations FIG 1 Standard anteroposterior view and line diagram of the hips. Note that the left lesser trochanter is destroyed by a. The differences between the fracture group and the controls were a thinner femoral cortex (measured at a point one head radius below the lesser trochanter) a larger femoral head, and a larger femoral ND in the fracture group (p < 0.025). The difference in cortical thickness was still significant when scaled by size, but the ratio of HD to ND. The native femoral head and neck size were 54 mm and 42 mm, respectively. The native femoral neck-shaft angle was 125°, and the femoral neck version was 20°. A virtual model of a Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR, Smith & Nephew Orthopaedics Ltd, Warwick, UK) was performed featuring a 54 mm femoral head and a 60 mm acetabular shell
