Abstract

BACKGROUND: High-energy traumas are common occurrences worldwide. The rate of overlooked neck fractures in polytrauma cases is also high. Previous studies have shown that articular hip pathologies, particularly neck fractures, are associated with fractures of the femoral shaft. This study sets out to describe cases of intra-articular hip pathology following traumatic femoral shaft fracture. Thus, the present study aims to investigate the relationship between ipsilateral hip pain and femoral shaft fractures.
