Ipsilateral Femoral Neck and Shaft Fractures with a Floating Knee Injury: A Case Report
Isolated ipsilateral fractures of the femoral neck and shaft are rare injuries. Similarly, a floating knee (ie, ipsilateral fractures of the femur and tibia) is uncommon. We describe a 34-year-old man with ipsilateral fractures of the femoral neck and shaft with an ipsilateral floating knee after a motorcycle collision. He was treated with operative fixation, and was walking without assistive devices at his most recent follow-up appointment in February 2019. We believe this to be a unique combination of injuries not yet described in studies.
