Ipsilateral femoral neck and shaft fracture in children: Two case reports.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2021 Jan;100(4):e23616

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Lishui Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine, The Fifth Affiliated Hospital of Wenzhou Medical University, Lishui Municipal Central Hospital, Lishui, Zhejiang, People's Republic of China.

Rationale: Pediatric femoral shaft combined with ipsilateral femoral neck fractures are very rare but challenging injuries fraught with the development of avascular necrosis, coxa vara, and leg length discrepancy. Majority of the previous reports indicated the neck femur fracture was fixed with cannulated screws or/and pins, femoral shaft fracture was stabilized with a plate and screws. However, we used cannulated screws combined with elastic stable intramedullary nails to minimally invasive procedures treat this type of injury and achieved good follow-up results. Read More

Treatment of unstable scaphoid waist nonunion with cancellous bone grafts and cannulated screw or Kirschner wire fixation.

J Plast Surg Hand Surg 2020 Dec 17:1-6. Epub 2020 Dec 17.

Department of Orthopedic, Ahmed Maher Teaching Hospital, Cairo, Egypt.

We compared two methods of fixation for unstable scaphoid waist nonunions regarding rate of scaphoid union, union time, deformity correction, clinical outcomes (pain, range of motion, and grip strength), and QuickDASH scores. Eighty-nine patients who undergo cancellous iliac bone grafting and internal fixation either with a Herbert screw ( = 46) or multiple Kirschner wires ( = 43) were evaluated. The rate of scaphoid union in the K-wire group was 98% ( = 42) versus 89% ( = 41) in the screw group. Read More

Surgical Fixation of Subtrochanteric Fracture in Patient with Cancellous Screw Fixation for Neck of Femur Fracture: Surgical Decision-Making and Outcome.

J Orthop Case Rep 2020 ;9(6):44-49

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Singapore General Hospital, 20 College Road, Academia, Level 4 169865, Singapore.

Introduction: Cannulated screw fixation is a common technique employed for the closed reduction and fixation of minimally or non-displaced neck of femur (NOF) fractures. A rare but potentially devastating complication is a peri-implant subtrochanteric fracture. Given the possibility of dealing with two potentially unstable fractures in close proximity from an incomplete union of the femoral neck, surgical fixation must be carefully planned with the option of retaining the existing cancellous screws to maintain femoral neck stability.

Department of Hand, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Microsurgery, Burn Centre, BG Trauma Centre, Ludwig-Guttmann-Str. 13, 67071 Ludwigshafen/Rhine, Germany; Department of Hand and Plastic Surgery, University of Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany. Electronic address:

In cases with difficult scaphoid screw placement due to small, fragile bone fragments, or transplants and insufficient space, the internal Kirschner wire fixation is a fallback option; however, controversy remains regarding its stability, safety, and outcome. Between 2001 and 2011, 95 patients were treated in our center (n = 80 with cannulated compression screws and n = 15 with Kirschner wires), and retrospectively analyzed. The outcome measurements included the analysis of patient data, union rate and analysis of functional measures, and quality of life. Read More

Treatment of Ipsilateral Femoral Neck and Shaft Fractures With Cannulated Screws and Antegrade Reconstruction Nail.

J Orthop Trauma 2020 May;34(5):e176-e180

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Tennessee Chattanooga, College of Medicine, Chattanooga, TN.

Ipsilateral femoral neck and shaft fractures are challenging injuries, and there are different fixation options but no consensus on a superior construct. Our preferred method is cannulated screw fixation of the femoral neck and antegrade reconstruction nailing of the shaft. Compressive fixation of the femoral neck fracture with cancellous lag screws followed by reconstruction nail placement provides compressive fixation and fixed angle support of the neck fracture while allowing for more optimal treatment of femoral shaft fractures at or above the isthmus.
