In addition to the selected prosthesis, possible alternatives should femr available in the operating room.

But, all movements of a ball-and-socket joint are rotational [ 23 ] and the studies that were concerned with neck fracture reported rotational instability for the proximal fragment [ 142325 ].

Femoral Neck Fractures

Pain around the hip particularly with movement, shortening of the leg [2]. The original proximal femoral hemiarthroplasty prostheses were made of a single casting with a femoral stem attached to the femoral neck and head.

A patient with preexistent osteoarthritis of the hip joint and a femoral neck fracture. Patients received low molecular-weight heparin and prophylactic doses of antibiotic. The mean sliding distance was 5.

Skeletal traction pending surgery is not supported by the evidence. Complications There were no cut-outs, breakage or pull-out of screws. This may not be as much of a concern in patients with limited independence and mobility.

In elderly patients who are medically well and still active, a total hip replacement may be indicated.


Hence, we feel that the DRS can control inferior translation of the proximal fragment. In patients aged between 65 and 99, femoral neck and intertrochanteric fractures occur with approximately the same frequency 7.

Confirm complete reduction, stability, and range of motion. We conclude that the grouped fractures have a common instability denominator and should therefore be treated alike. Author information Article notes Copyright and License information Disclaimer. While prosthetic replacement is reserved for fractures with a high risk of AVN and the elderly Thank you for rating! In trannscervical event of failure, the surgery may be redone, or changed to a total hip replacement. The prepared medullary cavity is filled from bottom to top with a cement gun, as illustrated.

An assistant holds the leg internally rotated, so that the tibia is perpendicular to the table surface. In one patient 2.
