Biomechanical comparison of internal fixation techniques for the treatment of unstable basicervical femoral neck fractures.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES The optimal method of internal fixation of basicervical femoral neck fractures is controversial. This area represents a transition zone between the intracapsular femoral neck fracture, usually fixed with multiple cancellous screws, and the extracapsular interochanteric fracture, fixed with a sliding screw device [sliding hip screw (SHS)] and… (More)
