Özet

BACKGROUND

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.
