fractured femur

A break in any part of the thigh bone, most commonly of the short neck between the top of the bone and the near-spherical head, in elderly people with OSTEOPOROSIS. Fracture of the shaft of the femur usually results from severe violence and there is often major loss of blood into the tissues causing surgical SHOCK.
