Retrieved 1 May The original proximal femoral hemiarthroplasty prostheses were made of a single casting with a femoral stem attached to the femoral neck and head.

Nonunionfailure of the fracture to heal, is common in fractures of the neck of the femur, trandcervical much more rare with other types of hip fracture. We prospectively studied 42 patients in order to identify a group of proximal femoral fractures having liability for axial and rotational instability, and to present results of their fixation using the dynamic hip screw DHS with derotation screw DRS.

Whenever possible, early mobilization is advocated; otherwise, alternating pressure mattresses should be used.

Hip fracture – Wikipedia

Neck of femur fractures are considered intracapsular fractures also called proximal femoral fractures. Since new cementing techniques have been introduced, the long-term results of the cemented prosthesis have been considerably improved. Dislocation may be more frequent with a posterior approach, according to many, but not all, reports.


The proper AP and lateral radiograph was sufficient for detection of the relation between the head—neck fragment and trochanters [ 22 ]. Franscervical it is estimated that there will be 6 million cases of hip fractures worldwide. Please refer to step 6 for further details.

Archived from the original on 13 October The canal can be shaped so that the prosthetic stem fits snugly, but without great stability press-fit.

Open in a separate window. A patient with preexistent osteoarthritis of the hip joint and a femoral neck fracture.

Femoral Neck Fracture

Trim off any excessive cement, and carefully remove all cement fragments from the hip joint and surrounding wound. Trochanteric fractures are not alike. Internal fixation can be performed with multiple pins, intramedullary hip screw IHMScrossed screw-nails or compression with a dynamic screw and plate 9. Malunionhealing of the fracture in a distorted position, is very common. Fractures managed by closed reduction can possibly be treated by percutaneously inserted screws. Pathophysiology Risk Factors Diagnosis Types: The infection dee controlled within five days with daily wound dressing and antibiotics.

Core Tested Community All.

Fixation of basicervical and related fractures

Explicit use of et al. Next, remove the femoral head.

Operative Techniques in Orthopaedic Trauma Surgery. The standard gamma nail or the Medoff sliding plate for unstable trochanteric and subtrochanteric fractures. The complications of displaced intracapsular fractures of the hip: The mean time lag before sugary was 3.


Make sure that cement debris are removed first and that soft tissues are retracted. Hence, we feel that the DRS can control inferior translation of the proximal fragment. Avoid mixing transcervicsl or air with the cement. Some authors have addressed this problem, and different solutions have been described, such as the use of a ttanscervical stabilising plate [ 15 ], valgus osteotomy [ 5 ] and augmentation of the fracture by use of the cement [ 116 ].

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

Resorbable cement for the augmentation of vractura fixed unstable trochanteric fractures. The use of a DHS has been supported by biomechanical properties, which are assumed to improve the healing of fractures [ 12 ]. L6 – years in practice.

Fracture fragments completely displaced. A comparative study with the gamma nail and compression hip screw. Dd people are unwell before breaking a hip; it is common for the break to have been caused by a fall due to some illness, especially in the elderly.
