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: Postoperative care included early-supervised non-weight bearing mobilization for three months. Radiographs at three months showed no early displacement or evidence of avascular necrosis (Fig. 4). The patient progressed to protected full-weight bearing for a further three months.
