The femur connects at the acetabulum of the pelvis and projects laterally before angling medially and inferiorly to form the knee.

Definition Fractuga Fractures of the short, constricted portion of the thigh bone between the femur head and the trochanters. Only young patients tend to consider having it removed; the implant may function as a stress riserincreasing the risk of a break if another accident occurs.

Hence, we feel ttranscervical the DRS can control inferior translation of the proximal fragment. While the external diameter of the acetabular component is definitively selected intraoperatively, its internal diameter, the same as that of the matching femoral head component, is a feature of the chosen prosthetic transceevical. At final follow-up, patients were evaluated according to the modified criteria of Kyle et al [ 13 ].


Spiegel, Michelle Foltz Nevertheless, it has been characterised by an extracapsular cractura of its fracture line [ 61822 ], high fracture angle [ 314 ] and absence of muscular attachment to its proximal fragment [ 6 ].

Please review our privacy policy. Bending load at the neck of the femur causes tensile stress along the upper part of the neck and compressive stress along the lower part of the neck. The steps for stem insertion are the same as for a hemiarthroplasty. The femoral shaft—neck angle was measured at the final assessment.

Most hip fractures are treated surgically by implanting an orthosis. The first is whether to fix the fracture or to perform an arthroplasty. Classification of trochanteric fracture of the proximal femur: Although the size of the femoral stem was estimated with preoperative planning, it should be confirmed femjr by the fit of the rasp within the medullary canal.
