Abstract provided by Publisher
Cerebral palsy patients are prone to spontaneous fractures due to poor bone quality. The treatment options of femoral fractures include conservative and operative management which is tailored according to the patient’s needs, co-morbidities and the presence of skilled surgeon. We present a 20 year old non-ambulatory CP patient who had a fractured femoral shaft which was treated by surgical excision of the fracture which is a surgical modality that according to our knowledge hasn’t been addressed before in literature.
