The neck of femur fractures are common in elderly age group due to osteoporosis and trivial fall results in fractures. They are best treated by joint replacement surgery in the form of either hemi or Total hip arthroplasty. The main aim is to mobilize the patient as early as possible so that we can prevent prolonged bed ridden complications like hypostatic pneumonia, bedsores, sarcopenia, decreased cardio respiratory reserve. On the second day of surgery patient is mobilized with full weight bearing with walker support.
The neck of femur fractures in young patients usually results due to high velocity injury. In young patients the femoral head is preserved and stabilized with cancellous screws. If the patient presents late with neck of femur fracture, treated with valgus osteotomy, bone grafting and DHS fixation.
