The role of computerized tomography in the diagnosis of an occult femoral neck fracture associated with an ipsilateral femoral shaft fracture: case report



The role of computerized tomography in the diagnosis of an occult femoral neck fracture associated with an ipsilateral femoral shaft fracture: case report



Journal of Trauma 31(2): 296-298



We report a nondisplaced femoral neck and head fracture diagnosed acutely by CT scanning. This case illustrates the potential benefits of an acute femoral neck/head CT scan in obtunded polytrauma patients with high-energy femoral shaft fractures.
