The article discusses a research being done on long-term outcome of children with neck and femoral fractures. It references a study by Anil Arora et al, presented at the 15th Triennial Congress of the Asia Pacific Orthopedic Association in September 2007 in Seoul, South Korea. The study included operative and nonoperative treatments on patients with different fractures including transcervical, transepiphyseal and intertrochanteric fractures. Investigators reported that children with femoral and neck fractures have good remodeling potential.

    Introduction: Femoral neck fractures are one of the most common fractures primarily the elderly, coupled with a high degree of morbidity and mortality. The treatment is applied a number of methods of internal fixation (multiple cannulated screws available, DHS system, cefalomedullaw). At the...

    Purpose: Short-stem hip arthroplasty preserves femoral bone stock which includes the femoral neck. This implies that the stem has to follow the anatomy of the femoral neck. Therefore, it has been questioned whether biomechanical reconstruction of the hip can be safely achieved with SHA. Methods:...
