AbstractAbstract PDF

Urgent reduction is required in cases of traumatic hip dislocation to reduce the risk of avascular necrosis of the femoral head. However, in cases of femoral head fractures, the dislocated hip cannot be reduced easily, and in some cases, it can even be irreducible. This irreducibility may provoke further incidental iatrogenic fractures of the femoral neck. In an irreducible hip dislocation, without further attempting for closed reduction, an immediate open reduction is recommended. This can prevent iatrogenic femoral neck fracture or avascular necrosis of the femoral head, and save the natural hip joint.

AbstractAbstract PDF

Calcaneal fractures are quite often seen in patients with axial loading injury. In the tongue-type of calcaneusal fractures or tuberosity avulsion fractures, bone fragments are often superiorly and posteriorly displaced, because of the insertion of the Achilles tendon and pull of the gastroc-soleus complex. The Ddisplaced bone fragment compresses the soft tissues, leading tothat makes skin necrosis. To prevent further soft tissue injury, early recognition of the injury by the emergency physician and immediate orthopedic consultation is needed.
