Femur Neck Fracture; Hemarthrosis; Intramedullary Nailing; Knee; Postoperative Complications
We present a case report of acute spontaneous knee hemarthosis due to erosion of the nail through the knee joint capsule in a boy seven months following retrograde flexible nailing for fractured femur. Careful positioning of the location of the insertion site o flexible nails and proper nail tip management are important to avoid this rare late complication.
