Bilateral pertrochanteric fractures with bilateral patellar fractures with missed medial process fracture of talus in a young adult: a case report and review of literature.
Management of polytrauma patients is one the most difficult and challenging tasks for an orthopaedic surgeon, and it includes different aspects of intervention: emergent resuscitative care, early surgical care, post-operative care and delayed rehabilitative care. We report an interesting case of multiple skeletal injuries with a coexisting pattern of fractures of bilateral patellae with bilateral pertrochanteric fractures of femur with a missed talar fracture following a dashboard type of injury in a road traffic accident. We are not aware of a similar case reported in literature in the past. We highlight the management protocol in such a case and review the available literature regarding such a presentation.
