NC72.7/S72.7 Multiple fractures of femur



Multiple fractures of the femur can be caused by a high-energy trauma, such as a motor vehicle accident, a fall from a height, or a major sports injury.


Multiple fractures of the femur are usually diagnosed through physical examination, imaging tests such as X-rays and CT scans, and blood tests.

Differential diagnosis

Other possible causes of femur fractures, such as osteoporosis or bone cancer, must be ruled out before a diagnosis of multiple fractures of the femur can be made.


Treatment for multiple fractures of the femur typically involves immobilization of the affected limb with a cast or splint, followed by surgery to align and stabilize the fractures with screws and plates.


The prognosis for multiple fractures of the femur is generally good, although it depends on the severity of the injury and the patient’s age and overall health. Recovery times can vary, but most patients are able to return to their normal activities within several months.
