Abstract

Femoral head fractures are associated with posterior and anterior dislocations of the hip. Treatment of these high-energy injuries is controversial with widely variable outcomes. When surgical intervention is indicated, there are multiple approaches that can be successfully and safely used for definitive fixation. The choice of surgical approach is both surgeon and final construct dependent.
