Femur Fracture Treatment (surgical)
As friend of mine broke his femur recently and I''m trying to find out what the standard procedure is for a broken femur that requires surgery. How soon is treatment necessary, or in other words, how long can a broken femur be broken before it starts causing other problems? Is 30 hours too long before surgery?
