Basicervical fracture is a fracture through the base of femoral neck at its junction with the intertrochanteric region.
Inclusion Criteria: Criteria for inclusion required mobility with no or one walking aid, presenting with basicervical fracture or its equivalent; a basicervical fracture, defined as an extracapsular fracture, through the base of the femoral neck at its junction with the intertrochanteric region [3], corresponding to the AO type B2.
Because basicervical fracture occurs at an area of differentiation of the femoral neck to the trochanteric region, it lacks an exact definition and appropriate place within the most commonly used classification systems.
Of the four femoral neck fractures that occurred, two occurred within 2 months, the third was a basicervical fracture that occurred at 24 months postoperatively after a fall, and the fourth occurred 41 months postoperatively after trauma.
