INTRODUCTION. The femur is the longest, strongest, and heaviest tubular bone in the human body and one of the principal load bearing bones in the lower extremity .Fractures of the femoral shaft often result from high energy forces such as motor vehicle collisions .Complications and injuries associated with midshaft femur fractures in the adult can be life-threatening and may . Pelvic fractures caused by high-force or high-speed injuries are often unstable and they need urgent hospital treatment. Less severe fractures which involve undisplaced fractures can occur after falls or trips, particularly if the bones are 'thin' (osteoporosis).Author: Dr Mary Lowth.

Treatment options include early spica casting, skeletal traction followed by spica casting, FIN, plate fixation, solid antegrade nailing, and external fixation. 7 The optimal treatment for femur fractures in this 4- to year-old age group is based on the nature of the injury, the character of the fracture, the skeletal maturity, the patient's.
