Hip dislocation with ipsilateral femoral shaft fracture (closed treatment of both injuries in a single setting): Case report and literature review


Author(s): Dr. Anand Kumar Gupta, Dr. Amit Narang, Dr. Prem Kumar and Dr. Anil Kuldeep

Abstract: Hip dislocation with concomitant femur shaft fracture is a rare and complex injury that results from high velocity trauma. There is lack of literature regarding pattern and management guidelines of these complex injuries. Here we report such rare case of posterior dislocation of hip associated with an ipsilateral fracture shaft of femur in a 21 year old male patient. Both the injuries were treated with closed reduction in a single anesthesia. The femoral head was first reduced with help of temporary external fixator and then closed antegrade femoral interlocking nailing was done for femoral shaft fracture. This resulted with a good functional outcome (Harris hip score-95) at one year follow up.
