Femoral Neck Fractures

  • Kenneth J. Koval
  • Joseph D. Zuckerman

Abstract

Fractures of the femoral neck are intracapsular, located in an area bounded by the femoral head and the greater and lesser trochanters (Figure 5.1). This fracture location has important implications for fracture healing and the development of osteonecrosis.
