A large branch of the medial femoral circumﬂex artery forms the extracapsular arterial ring posteriorly and anteriorly by a branch from the lateral femoral circumﬂex artery. The ascending cervical branches ascend on the surface of the femoral neck anteriorly along the intertrochanteric line. Posteriorly, the cervical branches run under the synovial reﬂection towards the rim of the articular cartilage, which demarcates the femoral neck from its head. The lateral vessels are the most vulnerable to injury in femoral neck fractures.
Most of the displaced one- or two-part fractures are treated with closed reduction and pin ﬁxation or open reduction and internal ﬁxation. The treatment options for threepart proximal humerus fractures include proximal humeral plate and screws or proximal humeral intramedullary nail. The preferred treatment of four-part fractures is humeral head replacement if ﬁxation with a plate and screws is not possible. This is primarily because of the high risk of osteonecrosis and secondarily because of the difﬁculty in obtaining secure internal ﬁxation.
