Abstract

Seven cases of femoral fractures in head-injured children with spasticity and/or decerebrate posturing and seizures were treated with external fixation. The fractures healed with good alignment, maintenance of length, and without infection. The technique is recommended both for its simplicity and lack of complications relative to other management approaches.
