Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Fracture of the femur in the area of a preexisting implant is not common in an adolescent. We report the case of a fracture, in the area of a pre-existing implant in an 11-year-old boy, after a fall from a bike. We are not aware of any similar reports in the literature.
