  1. 1. Old people with femoral neck fracture delirium, malnutrition and surgical methods - an intervention program

    University dissertation from Umeå : Kirurgisk och perioperativ vetenskap

    Abstract : Hip fracture is a global and a growing public health problem. More women than men sustain hip fractures, the incidence increases exponentially with age and mean age is above 80. About one third of hip-fracture patients suffer from dementia and are prone to develop acute confusional state (delirium). READ MORE

  2. 2. Displaced Femoral Neck Fractures A prospective randomized study of clinical outcome, nutrition and costs

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Torsten Johansson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Östergötlands Läns Landsting.; [2002]

    Abstract : Displaced femoral neck fractures comprise more than a third of all hip fractures. There is controversy as to the optimal treatment. Despite attempts to improve the methods for internal fixation, complication rates have been almost unchanged: 20-40% non-union and late segmental collapse in another 10-20%. READ MORE

  3. 3. Aspects on treatment of femoral neck fractures studies on treatment methods, surgical approach and external validity

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Sebastian Mukka; Umeå universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Hip fracture; femoral neck fracture; treatment; total hip arthroplasty; hemiarthroplasty; internal fixation; surgical approach; outcome; dislocation; femoral offset; leg length discrepancy; external validity; Orthopaedics; ortopedi;

    Abstract : Femoral neck fracture (FNF) is a great challenge for today´s health care and is associated with high mortality and morbidity in the elderly.  In the short term several studies in the literature have demonstrated improved hip function, quality of life and fewer re-operations in elderly patients treated with total hip arthroplasty (THA) instead of internal fixation (IF).

  4. 4. Arthroplasty for Femoral Neck Fracture. Results of a nationwide implementation

    Abstract : Hip fractures are devastating for the individual and a substantial economic burden for society. The treatment for displaced femoral neck fracture is a choice between internal fixation, total hip arthroplasty and hemiarthroplasty. READ MORE

  5. 5. Internal fixation of femoral neck fractures

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Leif Hernefalk; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1996]

    Abstract : The incidence of femoral neck fractures in elderly people is rising requiring large health care resources. Internal fixation of the fracture is the treatment of choice in Scandinavia, but in 20-40% of the cases a late complication such as a segmental collapse of the femoral head after initial bone necrosis, or a non-union of the fracture because of non-healing, will occur.
