Example text

The iliopsoas attaches to the lesser trochanter, resulting in internal rotation and external rotation with fractures. Distally, the large adductor muscle mass attaches medially, resulting in an apex lateral deformity with fractures. The medial and lateral heads of the gastrocnemius attach over the posterior femoral condyles, resulting in flexion deformity in distal-third fractures. Appropriate resuscitation of the patient is necessary prior to any definitive surgery. The femur is very vascular, so fractures can result in 2–3 units of blood loss into the thigh.

50 Orthopaedics Fracture displacement ranging up to 5 mm can be treated conservatively; however, a depressed fragment greater than 5 mm should be considered for elevation and bone grafting. The goals of tibial plateau fracture treatment are to restore joint stability, alignment, and articular congruity while preserving full range of motion. Internal fixation techniques include ligamentotaxis, percutaneous fixation, and antiglide techniques. When extensive comminution and damaged soft tissues prohibit the use of internal fixation, circular external fixators are an excellent fallback option for management.

Ideally during the preoperative period the patient should be managed on an orthopaedic ward with orthogeriatric medical support. This patient is on warfarin; withholding warfarin combined with administration of oral or intravenous vitamin K is recommended for reversal of the anticoagulant effect of warfarin to permit earlier surgery if deemed appropriate. Where it is deemed appropriate to use it, fresh frozen plasma (FFP) should 42 Orthopaedics be used. The routine use of traction (either skin or skeletal) is not recommended prior to surgery for a hip fracture.
