This case report describes the first documented arthroscopic reduction and internal fixation of a rare isolated femoral head fracture without associated dislocation. A large suprafoveal osteochondral fracture was arthroscopically reduced by use of crossover techniques gained from experience performing arthroscopic femoroacetabular impingement surgery. An innovative "chopstick" maneuver was used to rotate the mobilized osteochondral fragment into anatomic position, followed by arthroscopic… CONTINUE READING
