This article discusses fractures of the femoral diaphysis for proximal femur fractures (subtrochanteric to femoral head), see the article fractures, hipfor fractures of the distal femur (supracondylar to condylar), see the article fractures, knee the femur is the largest and strongest bone and has a good blood supply. A 78 year old woman presented to the emergency department with an off-ended, shortened, anteriorly deviated, long oblique fracture of the right femoral diaphysis. Atypical femoral fractures (ffa) are defined as femoral stress fractures that comprise the diaphysis or the subtrochanteric region and which have certain characteristics , the term ffa. Bilateral femoral stress fracture has been reported in a child6) the common symptoms of previously described cases were sustained hip pain and limping some cases had a history of excessive sports activity and problems affecting general health condition, such as anorexia.
Case report open access combined bilateral femoral head necrosis and pertrochanteric fracture: a case report bogdan deleanu1,2, radu prejbeanu1,2, dan crisan1,2, dinu vermesan1,2, vlad predescu3. Simultaneous bilateral neck of femur fracture is rare and usually occurs in high impact trauma it has also been described in patients with seizures and underlying bone abnormalities in this case, the aetiology was a simple fall in an elderly patient. Surgical management of hip fractures: an evidence-based review of the literature i: femoral neck fractures femoral neck fracture femoral neck fractures are intracap-sular and typically occur in a bimo-dal age distribution, with most oc-curring in the elderly population. 50-year-old female presented with bilateral high energy fractures due to a motor vehicle accident with prolonged extrication the patient suffered from right open comminuted distal femoral fracture and tibial plateau fracture and left closed comminuted femoral shaft fracture.
Bilateral atypical femoral fractures in a patient prescribed denosumab — a case report to our knowledge, this is the first reported case in the peer-reviewed literature of an atypical femoral fracture with bilateral changes in a patient prescribed denosumab. Femoral shaft fracture, and a reversed distal femoral locking plate on the right side due to severe comminution of the left greater trochanter the follow-up period in bilateral trochanteric fractures can be challenging for the patient. Anteroposterior pelvic radiograph (a), bilateral oblique pelvic radiographs (b, c), axial ct scan (d), and surface-rendering 3d ct scan viewed laterally (e), with right hemipelvis and femur removed, show transverse fracture (straight arrows) disrupting iliopectineal and ilioischial lines (arrowheads) with displaced and comminuted posterior wall. Distal femoral fracture after total knee arthroplasty fabrício bilateral supracondylar fracture of the femur (fig 2), clas-siﬁed as type ii in accordance with the rorabeck and taylor criteria6 she bilateral distal femoral fracture after total knee arthroplasty author. Bilateral femur fractures are fairly uncommon then unilateral fracture patient with these injury consider having high in-tensity impact which hence increase the traumatic stress on the body, therefore good resuscitation is milestone, aiding in better outcome increased iss in bilateral femur fracture.
Bilateral femoral shaft fractures were seen on radiographs of the femurs both had a similar configuration with a transverse break in the lateral cortex roughly 10cm below the lesser trochanter. The spectrum of femur fractures is wide and ranges from non-displaced femoral stress fractures to fractures associated with severe comminution and significant soft-tissue injury femur fractures are typically described by location (proximal, shaft, distal. The femur is the longest and heaviest bone in the body and as such, requires an extensive blood supply due to this large blood supply, mainly from the nutrient arteries branching off of the profunda femoral perforating arteries, fractures tend to heal relatively well. Simultaneous bilateral neck of femur fracture is rare there have been few reports of such a condition in the literature this uncommon pattern of injury has been associated with high-energy trauma, underlying bone disease, and seizure disorders. Bilateral femoral neck fractures is an unusual and severe injury in this high-risk population awareness of fracture risk may induce both patients at risk and clinicians to implement appropriate.
Exclusion criteria were pathological fractures caused by a tumor disease, simultaneous bilateral or segment fractures, isolated fractures of the trochanteric region, femoral head fractures, periprosthetic or peri-implant fractures as well as an age younger than 18 years. Fractures of the femoral shaft and supracondylar fractures - usually caused by violent trauma and most often occur in adolescents and young adults femoral stress fractures - partial-thickness fractures, most commonly affecting the femoral neck. However, due to the undisplaced oblique diaphyseal right femoral fracture, management of that femur was revised to open reduction, cerclage wiring of the distal femoral fragment, and fracture fixation with a 12-hole 95-degree dynamic condylar screw over the cerclage wires (below.
Background despite being rare there are several reports in the medical literature of bilateral femoral neck fractures in adult patients they have been reported to have occurred following major trauma, or as a result of primary or secondary bone disease. Insufficiency fractures of the neck of femur without preceding trauma have been described in the literature, although bilateral involvement is infrequent the femoral neck is the most common site of fatigue and insufficiency fractures in the femur [ 1 . A rare case of spontaneous bilateral stress fractures of femoral neck leading to coxa vara in a young female with history of chronic renal disease and secondary osteomalacia is described once the underlying disease was controlled, the fracture was treated by valgus osteotomy with good result. Extracapsular hip fracture is the hip fracture that includes the trochanteric of the femur it was intertrochanteric hip fracture and subtrochanteric hip fracture intertrochanteric fracture somehow denotes a fracture which line between greater and lesser greater trochanter on intertrochanteric line.
Ed management a child presenting with a chronic slipped upper femoral epiphysis (sufe) will generally walk with an antalgic gait, out-toeing and some shortening of the affected limb the child may complain of vague pain in the groin, thigh or knee. Distal femur fractures can be classified as metaphyseal fractures or physeal fractures metaphyseal fractures — transverse distal metaphyseal fractures (also called supracondylar femoral fractures) are the most common type of distal femur fracture in infants and young children ( image 1 ) [ 1 .
