Abstract

Fifty-four femoral neck stress fractures were studied prospectively to evaluate treatment methods. Fifty-four fractures in 49 patients were identified in a 4 year prospective study that included 1,049 stress fractures of all types. From our evaluation of treatment methods, a modification of existing classification systems was developed based on radiographic findings and treatment. Differences from earlier studies were noted in racial diversity, in nonprogression of tension-side fractures, and in return to function.
