Garden I femoral neck fracture

Discussion:

The weakest part of the femur is the femoral neck which is particularly prone to fracture in elderly osteoporotic patients. The Garden system is used to classify subcapital (just below the femoral head) femoral neck fractures: this impacted non-displaced neck fracture with mild valgus angulation is a Garden I injury. Non-displaced fractures are most often treated with cannulated hip screws while displaced fracures are often treated with arthroplasty.
