    Purpose: Paediatric femur neck fractures are exceedingly rare owing to dense bone surrounded by a strong periosteum; they account for 1 % of paediatric fractures and are usually associated with high energy trauma. Methods: This was a prospective multicenter therapeutic study on pediatric femoral...
