Anatomy of the Hip
Fracture in the Hip
Common Types of Fractures in the Hip
Femoral Neck Fracture – A common fracture of the hipbone involves the femoral neck that tends to break it its weakest point usually located two inches or less from the hip joint. Most femoral neck fractures occur as a result of osteoporosis in elderly individuals, especially women. These kinds of fractures typically cause significant complications. This is because the fracture usually restricts blood supply to the femoral head at the point that forms the hip joint.
Intertrochanteric Hip Fracture – A hip fracture at the intertrochanteric portion of the hipbone is usually an easier procedure for a surgeon to repair. The fracture occurs approximately 4 inches away from the hip joint and does not restrict blood flow to the remaining bone.
Intracapsular Fracture – This type of serious fracture is usually a break affecting the ball and socket of the hip. Based on its severity, it can be challenging to repair.
If the hip fracture is not easily repaired, or does not heal properly, usually a hip replacement is the only other healing option available.
