Manipulation of the fracture frequently results in osteonecrosis and the acute loss of articular cartilage chondrolysis because of the tenuous nature of the blood supply.

Case 15 Case Multiplane reconstruction allows assessment of the relationship of the femoral head to the metaphysis in three planes. Because the physis has yet to close, the blood supply to the epiphysis still should be derived from the femoral neck; however, this late in childhood, the supply femorsl tenuous and frequently lost after the fracture occurs. Radiographs are taken and shown in Figures A and B.
