The osteosynthesis of fractures of the femoral neck in the elderly has been partly abandoned during the last years due to the poor clinical outcomes of conventional fixation with parallel screws or DHS. Based on clinical evidence and laboratory testing, the novel method of biplane double-supported screw fixation (BDSF) offers much better fixation stability, reflecting in excellent clinical outcomes. This book describes the full surgical technique of the method of BDSF for femoral neck fracture osteosynthesis; quality criteria and surgical recommendations for successful BDSF implementation, according to the vast clinical experience of ten years with this highly effective method. A novel surgical approach for hip arthroplasty is described in this book. The current trends aimed at decreasing operative trauma and blood loss have been not entirely satisfied with respect to most of the standard approaches for hip arthroplasty. These surgeries are often associated with considerable blood loss and the necessity for restricting patients’ activities in the postoperative period due to impaired joint stability and risk of dislocations. This book describes the full surgical technique of the novel anatomical direct lateral approach for hip arthroplasty, aimed at decreasing blood loss, minimizing operative trauma, and optimizing joint stability. This technique is associated with minimal blood loss and high joint stability. Patients are allowed to perform activities within the normal range of motion in the early postoperative period. This book describes also the history of internal fixation in femoral neck fractures, as well as the biomechanics of femoral neck fracture osteosynthesis and the role of the implants.
