Posterior hip dislocation and ipsilateral isolated femoral neck fracture: A novel fixation method.

Henderson L, Johnston A, Mockford B, Craig B - J Surg Case Rep (2012)

Bottom Line: This was managed emergently with open reduction and osteosynthesis.The use of antegrade guide wires allowed accurate placement in a triangular configuration and temporary fixation to facilitate hip reduction prior to retrograde insertion of three 6.5mm cannulated screws.The patient, although developing radiological avascular necrosis, continues to work and has returned to hobbies at 4.5 years.

Mentions: Antero-posterior radiograph of the pelvis confirmed a displaced transcervical femoral neck fracture with associated dislocation of the femoral head. Computed-tomography, confirmed a posterior dislocation of the femoral head with no associated acetabular fracture (Fig. 1,2,3).
