Abstract

Femoral neck fracture is a common fracture in elderly or osteoporotic women. But femoral neck fracture in previously amputed patients is rare, so the guideline of appropriate treatment is rarely discussed. Especially, femoral neck fracture in patients with above knee amputation was more rare. Hereby I report a case of femoral neck fracture occurred to 58-year-old male bilateral above knee amputee with the review of literatures.
