Your femur (thigh bone) is the strongest and the longest bone in your body. Since the femur is very strong, therefore it generally takes a lot of force to break it, such as Car crashes and severe car accidents are the major cause of femur fractures. The femoral shaft is the straight and long part of the femur. In case, there is a break in the femur, then it is known as a femoral shaft fracture.
The fractures of Femur vary greatly, and completely depend on the force that is behind the fracture. The pieces of bone be displaced (out of alignment) or may line up incorrectly, and the fracture may open (the bone has punctured the skin) or be closed (skin intact).
The most common surgical treatment used for this type of fracture is external fixation, which include screws, plates and intramedullary nailing. The GPC Medical offers a range of premium quality femur shaft implants.
