Abstract

A sciatic nerve injury can arise from a penetrating injury of the thigh, a longstanding malposition or after hip arthroplasty. However, it rarely occurs after a subtrochanteric fracture of the femur. We report a case of sciatic nerve entrapment associated with a subtrochanteric fracture of the femur, which was aggravated after skeletal traction.
