Ipsilateral Acetabular and Femoral Neck and Shaft Fractures.

Irifune H, Hirayama S, Takahashi N, Narimatsu E - Case Rep Orthop (2015)

Bottom Line: Floating hip injuries and ipsilateral femoral neck and shaft fractures are rare.Here, we report the case of a patient with ipsilateral acetabular and femoral neck and shaft fractures following a suicide attempt.The patient experienced nonunion of the femoral neck and shaft after the initial operation and therefore underwent reconstruction using a femoral head prosthesis with a long stem and interlocking screws.

ABSTRACT
Floating hip injuries and ipsilateral femoral neck and shaft fractures are rare. Additionally, the simultaneous occurrence of these injuries is extremely rare, and only one case report of the simultaneous occurrence of these injuries has been published. Here, we report the case of a patient with ipsilateral acetabular and femoral neck and shaft fractures following a suicide attempt. The patient experienced nonunion of the femoral neck and shaft after the initial operation and therefore underwent reconstruction using a femoral head prosthesis with a long stem and interlocking screws. Our procedure may be used in primary and/or secondary reconstruction for ipsilateral acetabular and femoral neck and shaft fractures.

fig2: Three-dimensional computed tomography images showing a transverse fracture and posterior wall fracture of the right acetabulum.

Mentions: Radiographs showed fractured femoral neck and shaft, an acetabular fracture (Figures 1(a) and 1(b)), and a humeral shaft fracture on the right side. Whole body computed tomography showed right pulmonary contusion, liver contusion, and type B3 acetabular fracture, according to the AO classification system (Figure 2). Additionally, her injury severity score was 29.
