The management of 51 comminuted fractures of the shaft of the femur, treated in Africa with limited facilities, is described. The majority were immobilised on. Introduction: Les fractures diaphysaires du fémur (FDF) de l’enfant sont fréquentes. Pour les enfants de 0 à 6 ans, le traitement est souvent orthopédique, avec. Ce travail a pour objectif d’évaluer les résultats de l’embrochage centromédullaire élastique stable (ECMES) dans les fractures diaphysaires du fémur chez.

Acta Orthop Traumatol Turc ; Close vs open interlocking nailing. Distal part of intertrochanteric line and medial ridge of linea aspera. Functional outcome of diaphyseal fractures of femur managed by closed intramedullary interlocking nailing in adults.

Follow-up examinations tolerance with x-rays cast in place were scheduled for day 8 dipahysaire day The femur is the only bone in the upper leg. Closed intramedullary nailing of femoral fractures.

In the infant it is about degrees and in old age reduced to degrees on average.

Its front part is named the patellar surface and articulates with the patella ; it presents a median groove which extends downward to the intercondyloid fossa and two convexities, the lateral of which is broader, more prominent, and extends farther upward than the medial.

Elastic stable intramedullary nailing of femoral shaft fractures in children: The femur develops from the limb buds as a result of interactions between the ectoderm and the underlying mesodermformation occurs roughly around the fourth week of development. X-ray and clinical photograph showing broken IMIL nail in situ.

X-ray showing transverse fracture of shaft of femur preoperative, postoperative at 2 days and 16 weeks, respectively. Greater trochanter and lateral ridge of linea aspera. Although undertaking an ESIN can be difficult, due to the lack of adequate equipment the procedure produces satisfactory outcome.


American Journal of Physical Anthropology. None, Conflict of Interest: The femur is categorised as a long bone and comprises a diaphysis shaft or body and two epiphyses extremities that articulate with adjacent bones in the hip and knee.

It’s a retrospective, transversal and comparative study. The major advantage of early spica is a short hospital stay allowing cost containment and rapid return to the child’s everyday environment. The average age of our patients was To conclude, stable elastic centro medullary insertion is a technique particularly adapted to the surgical treatment of diaphyseal fractures of the femur of the school-aged child.

Both the head and neck of the femur is vastly embedded in diaphyssire hip musculature and can not be directly palpated. Top of the page – Article Outline.

For children aged less than 7 years, most authors propose orthopedic treatment using prolonged traction then cast immobilization, or orthopedic reduction under general anesthesia and early cast immobilization.

The greater trochanter is almost box-shaped and is the most lateral prominent of the femur. Outline Masquer le plan. The greater trochanter can easily be felt. Each condyle is surmounted by an elevation, the epicondyle. Medial surface of greater trochanter. Contact Help Who doaphysaire we? The lateral frcature which is smaller and less prominent than the medial, gives attachment to the fibular collateral ligament of the knee-joint. Postoperative X-ray showing exchange nailing at 2 days and 12 weeks, respectively.


Excellent to good results were seen in Indications, technical particularities and results were studied. Physiotherapy is very important to optimize functional recuperation of patient, after surgery.

The shock was direct in The size of the tubercle varies and it is not always located on the intertrochanteric crest and that also adjacent areas can be part of the quadrate tubercel, such as the posterior surface of the greater trochanter or the neck of the femur.

Osteosynthesis for femoral diaphyseal fracture: In a small anatomical study it was shown that the epiphysial line passes directly through the quadrate tubercle.
