What are femoral neck fractures?

Femoral neck fractures are a specific type of intracapsular hip fracture. The femoral neck connects the femoral shaft with the femoral head. The hip joint is the articulation of the femoral head with the acetabulum. The junctional location makes the femoral neck prone to fracture. The blood supply of the femoral head is an essential consideration in displaced fractures as it runs along the femoral neck.

What is the prevalence of tibia and fibula fracture?

We report the results of a three-year study of bifocal fractures of the tibia and fibula, excluding segmental shaft fractures. In our whole series, these formed 4.7% of all tibial diaphyseal fractures. We describe three groups: bifocal fractures of both the proximal and the distal joint surfaces, fr …

What is a fracture of the femoral neck?

A femoral neck fracture is one type of hip fracture. This injury occurs just below the ball of the ball-and-socket hip joint, the region of the thigh bone called the femoral neck. A femoral neck fracture disconnects the ball from the rest of the thigh bone (femur). Correspondingly, how long does it take for a femoral neck fracture to heal?

What is right femoral neck?

The femoral neck is the most common location for a hip fracture. Your hip is a ball and socket joint where your upper leg meets your pelvis. At the top of your femur (which is your thigh bone) is the femoral head. This is the “ball” that sits in the socket. Just below the femoral head is the femoral neck.

What is the left fibula?

The fibula or calf bone is a leg bone on the lateral side of the tibia, to which it is connected above and below. It is the smaller of the two bones and, in proportion to its length, the most slender of all the long bones.

Where is the fibula head?

Anatomy Explorer At the fibula's proximal end, just below the knee, is a slightly rounded enlargement known as the head of the fibula. The head of the fibula forms the proximal (superior) tibiofibular joint with the lateral edge of the tibia.
