Abstract

Ipsilateral femoral neck, shaft, and supracondylar fractures are rare injuries. This fracture pattern is difficult to treat, but no detailed cases were found in the English literature. The authors report a case of this unusual combination successfully managed by retrograde intramedullary nailing and screw fixation.

Résumé

Les fractures homolatérales du col, de la diaphyse et supracondylienne fémorales sont des lésions rares. Ce mode de fracture est difficile à traiter, cependant, aucun cas détaillé n'est répertorié dans la littérature anglaise. Les auteurs rapportent un cas de cette combinaison inhabituelle, qui a été traité avec succès par un enclouage inter-médullaire et une solidarisation par vis.
