History and Evaluation: A 28 year old male presented with right hip pain eight months after a fracture dislocation of the hip. The patient was treated nonoperatively at an outside hospital. He had severe restriction of motion, pain and activity limitations due to a malunited femoral head fracture. X Rays demonstrated poor positioning of the healed femoral head fracture (arrow).
Treatment: Right hip surgical dislocation with open reduction internal fixation of the malunited femoral head, acetabular rim trimming and labral repair was performed.
Outcomes: X rays show that the femoral head shape has been restored and the fracture is healed. The patient has returned to full activities with no restrictions.
