:: Femoral Fractures ::
Ankle Fractures ::
Achilles Tendon Ruptures ::
The thighbone (femur) is the longest and the strongest bone in
the body. To break the thighbone across its length (shaft) takes a
great deal of force, as might occur in a motor vehicle accident or
a fall from a high place. Because of this, a broken thighbone is
often associated with potentially life-threatening injuries to
other body systems. In children younger than 3 years, a thighbone
fracture is often an indicator of abuse.
