Anatomic reduction is mandatory for the treatment of femoral neck
fractures. In the current literature, the Leadbetter technique is
recommended to obtain closed reduction. Since surgeons use their
hands for reduction, the most difficult part of this manoeuvre is
lateral traction. As surgeons usually are not strong enough to
separate the femur from an impacted neck, we describe an
alternative method to achieve the reduction using a reduction tool.
