Femoral Neck Fractures in the Physiologically Young Patient: Femoral neck fractures in young patients remain extremely challenging to manage because of a tenuous blood supply and a disadvantageous fracture healing environment. This has resulted in high rates of nonunion and avascular necrosis. Little Level I data exist to guide the treating surgeon with regard to timing of fixation, type of reduction (open vs. closed), or the optimal implant to stabilize these fractures. This supplement examines how to improve outcomes for patients sustaining these life-changing injuries. Publication support provided by Smith & Nephew.
