Femur

There are a host of femur fractures in medical science, and they range from fractures due to soft-tissues injuries to femoral stress fractures and fractures linked with brutal comminution. The nomenclature of femur fractures is dependent on the location of the injury (proximal, distal, shaft). These traumatic fractures are usually divided into three types, namely high-energy, low energy (also known as pathologic fractures) and stress fractures.

Most of the femur fractures are resolved through surgery. The goal is to achieve stability and proper movement as soon as possible. Fractures and other injuries can have both short and long-term effects on the overall well-being of the person, especially if the alignment is restored.

Revision

Researches have lauded the effects of femoral component revision surgery, using extensively coated stems. In most of the cases, mechanical failure has been the root cause and not infection. The revision surgery is done if there are any post-surgery problems, or the lack of improvement, which requires another surgery. Patients must consult their doctor, to discuss the importance of undergoing a revision.
