The femur, or thigh bone, is the only bone in the thigh and is the longest bone in the body. It acts as the site of origin and attachment for many muscles and ligaments, and the head forms a ball and socket joint with the hip.

The femoral neck connects the femoral shaft with the femoral head. Femoral neck fractures are a type intracapsular hip fracture – the junctional location makes the neck prone to fracture.

A broken femur of any type is a serious injury that requires immediate medical attention. Broken femurs are treated with surgery and physical therapy, and can take months to heal.

Beginning with an introduction to the anatomy and biomechanics of the hip, this book is a comprehensive guide to the clinical evaluation and management of femoral neck fractures.

Treatment methods examined include both traditional and new techniques.

Management of fractures in specific sectors of the population such as in paediatric and geriatric patients, are also covered.

The text is further enhanced by clinical photographs, illustrations and figures.
