Femur Fractures

A fracture is a partial or complete break in the bone. When a fracture occurs, it is classified as either open or closed:

  • open fracture (Also called compound fracture.) - the bone exits and is visible through the skin, or a deep wound that exposes the bone through the skin
  • closed fracture (Also called simple fracture.) - the bone is broken, but the skin is intact

Diagnostic procedures may include the following:

The following are the most common symptoms of a fracture:

  • pain in the injured area
  • swelling in the injured area
  • obvious deformity in the injured area
  • difficulty using or moving the injured area in a normal manner
  • warmth, bruising, or redness in the injured area

Treatments may include: 

  • splint/cast
