Femoral Shaft Fractures

Femoral shaft fractures are usually caused by severe Krafeinwirkung and are clinically apparent. The treatment is done with immediate splinting with traction followed by reduction with open osteosynthesis.

The injury is usually caused by severe direct or axial force with the knee flexed (typically in a collision of cars or car-pedestrian collision). Therefore, other serious injuries are often present.

Fractures cause significant swelling, deformity (often with shortening) and instability. go up to 1.5 liters of blood for can with any fracture lost. A hemorrhagic shock is possible, especially if the cause blunt trauma and there are other injuries. Diagnostic X-rays anteroposterior and lateral radiographs are diagnostic. If a break is caused due to a large force, a radiograph of the hips should always be performed to look for an ipsilateral femoral neck fracture. The knee should also be carefully considered. Immediate treatment with splinting traction Open reduction with internal fixation (ORIF) Immediate treatment is splinting, usually with distraction (such as with a Hare Traktion- or Teller Traktion- rail), followed by ORIF. Because traction rail train aussüben to the lower leg, they should not be used when patients have a tibia fracture.
