Abstract:   (2544 Views)
Femoral neck fractures are serious injuries that are associated with high mortality and morbidity. Considerable controversy still exists for best treatment of non-displaced (Garden I and Garden II) fractures. Our case is a 34-year-old woman with Garden type II femoral neck fracture, who refused all surgical options and willingly ignored her problem. The patient received subcutaneous injections of 20 mcg Teriparatidefor 6 weeks. 3 months later she returned to our center with uneventful recovery of her fracture. Although rigid internal fixation of femoral neck fractures has long been the cornerstone of treatment, especially in non-impacted cases, non-operative management does not mean a poor result.
