Avascular necrosis of the femoral head as sequela of fracture of the greater trochanter. A case report and review of the literature



Avascular necrosis of the femoral head as sequela of fracture of the greater trochanter. A case report and review of the literature



Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research 1993(294): 193-195



After a fall from a tree, a 12-year-old boy sustained a fracture of the greater trochanter and was subsequently treated by open reduction. Twenty months after surgery, the hip developed to a flexion contracture, limb-length discrepancy, a collapsed, irregular-shaped femoral head with sclerotic areas, and a metaphyseal cyst. A growing child with avascular necrosis of the femoral head after fracture of the greater trochanter seems not to have been reported in the English language literature.
