Fracture of the Femoral Shaft and an Associated Ipsilateral Fracture of the Femoral Neck


The femoral neck fracture having concomitant fracture of the femoral shaft occurs predaminantly in young man and have known to associate the serious complications. One of such factures is sometimes overlooked and is possibly due to a more obvious nature of the shaft fracture than that of the ipsilateral neck. Six cases of this type of combined fractures in ipsilateral femur are reported with the review of 1 iteratures. In six cases of the femoral neck fractures, three which were unrecognized at initial examiaation in early phase, resulting in serious residue as much as deformity and avascular necrosis of the femoral head, and other three were recognized in early at initial examination healed in good anatomic position and in due time. Through this observation it is stressed that early discovery and adaquate treatment of the fracture is the only solution to minimize the sequelae.
