Femur Fractures

A femoral shaft fracture, also known as a broken thigh bone, are most often due to a high-energy collision. The most common cause of a femur fracture is an auto accident. Other common causes are being hit by a car, falls from heights, and gunshot wounds. A lower-force incident, such as a fall from standing, may cause a broken thigh bone in an older person who has weaker bones.
