Gene context of Femoral Neck Fractures

  • Fifteen (8.4%) of 179 patients admitted with femoral neck fractures carried MRSA [18].
  • To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of a patient with normocalcemic primary hyperparathyroidism presenting with bilateral femoral neck fracture [19].
  • CONCLUSION: The results support the use of an SHS and DHS composite compared with three cancellous screws in the treatment of unstable basicervical femoral neck fractures [20].
  • OBJECTIVES: To compare maximum extraction torque and pull-out load for femoral neck fracture implants inserted with standard technique or after augmentation with polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) or calcium phosphate cement (Norian SRS) [21].
  • This case report demonstrates osteogenic sarcoma at the site of a Smith-Petersen nail that had been implanted for nine years in a 65-year-old woman for fixation of a femoral neck fracture [22].
