Description: Fractures of the femur are common and may affect the femoral neck, the femoral shaft or supracondylar, which often also involve the knee joint. Fractures of the femoral neck are far more common in the elderly but fractures of the femoral shaft and supracondylar fractures are usually caused by violent trauma and most often occur in adolescents and young adults.
