Book Analyzes
The fractures of the proximale end of the femur constitute major public health problems, whose frequency is growing in the developed countries, because of the ageing of the population. The team of Professor J. Manninger of Budapest developed a system of osteosynthesis per screwing of the femoral neck. The work is mainly dedicated to him and thus does not constitute an exhaustive and contradictory work on the treatment of the fractures of the neck of the femur. It consists of 12 chapters:
  • 1 Proximal femur fractures: definition, epidemiology, anatomy, biomechanics

  • 2 Pathology of femoral neck fractures

  • 3 Diagnostic and investigation

  • 4 Historical retrospective

  • 5 Biomechanical aspects of cannulated screw fixation

  • 6 Justification for early surgery

  • 7 reduction of the fracture

  • 8 Internal fixation

  • 9 Treatment of undisplaced and atypical femoral neck fractures

  • 10 Postoperative treatment, early complications

  • 11 Results of treatment

  • 12 Appendix

Osteosyntheses by triple screwing are well known with well-indexed indications, and this system of osteosynthesis is not quite different. This work is highly recommended to the curious surgeons who have a daily practice about traumatology.
