- Displaced femoral neck fractures are rare in children
and are associated with a high rate of complications.
Subtrochanteric fractures after cannulated screw fixation
of femoral neck fractures in adults are well recognized,
and there are several reports on the topic.
However, there are no reports on complications related
to hardware or subtrochanteric fractures after removal
of the screws in the treatment of femoral neck fractures
Here we report the case of a 10-year-old boy who
sustained a subtrochanteric fracture after the screw removal
and healing that followed a femoral neck fracture.
