Injuries of Lower Limb
Treatment of choice for a fracture neck of femur (intracapsular) in a 65 year old male patient who shows arthritic changes of the acetabulum in a radiogram of his Hip is: (AIPG 2011)
|A||Austin Moore Hemi Arthroplasty|
|B||Manipulation and Hip Spica application|
|C||Total Hip Replacement|
|D||Garden Screw Fixation|
Total Hip Replacement
a. Total hip replacement in which both the upper end of the femur and the acetabulum are replaced is the treatment of choice in such a situation. Hemi replacement will cause residual pain.
b. Hip spica application in this age group is unacceptable, so is the case with Garden screw fixation.
