I- Introduction

A fracture is a break in the continuity of bone and is defined according to its type and extent. Fractures occur when the bone is subjected to stress greater that it can absorb. Fractures are caused by direct blows, crushing forces, sudden twisting motions, and even extreme muscle contractions. When the bone is broken, adjacent structures are also affected, resulting in soft tissue edema, hemorrhage into the muscles and joints, joint dislocation, ruptured tendons, severed nerves, and damaged blood vessels. Body organs maybe injured by the force that cause the fracture or by the fracture fragments. There are different types of fractures and these include, complete fracture, incomplete fracture, closed fracture, open fracture and there are also types of fractures that may also be described according to the anatomic placement of fragments, particularly if they are displaced or nondisplaced. Such as greenstick fracture, depressed fracture, oblique fracture, avulsion, spinal fracture, impacted fracture, transverse fracture and compression fracture. A comminuted fracture is one that produces several bone fragments and a closed fracture or simple fracture is one that not cause a break in the skin. Comminuted fracture at the Right Femoral Neck is a fracture in which bones of the Right Femoral Neck has splintered to several fragments. By choosing this condition as a case study, the student nurse expects to broaden her knowledge understanding and management of fracture, not just for the fulfillment of the course requirements in medical-surgical nursing. It is very important for the nurses now a day to be adequately informed regarding the knowledge and skill in managing these conditions since hip fracture has a high incidence among elderly people, who have brittle bones from osteoporosis (particularly women) and who tend to fall frequently. Often, a fractured hip is a catastrophic event that will have a negative impact on the patient‘s life style and quality of life. There are two major types of hip fracture. Intracapsular fractures are fractures of the neck of the femur, Extracapsular fracture are fractures of the trochanteric region and of the subtrocanteric region. Fractures of the neck of the femur may damage the vascular system that supplies blood to the head and the neck of the femur, and the bone may die. Many older adults experience hip fracture that 1

student nurse need to insure recovery and to attend their special need efficiently and effectively. True the knowledge of this condition, a high quality of care will be provided to those people suffering from it.

1.2. Family and Individual Information, Social and Health History

Mrs. Torralba, Lourdes who resides in 8 Acacia St. Camputhaw Lahug, Cebu City, Cebu Province with 9 successful children ( 6 boys and 3 girls) was admitted to Cebu Doctors‘ University Hospital for further management of the condition. Mrs. Torralba is a college graduate and she‘s previously working as an assistant of her husband ( Mr. Rodrigo Torrralba ) a doctor. The patient was diagnosed to have Breast Cancer (Right) last 2006 with bone metastasis and on chemotherapy with aromasin.


Two days prior to admission, the patient was standing and was about to open up he umbrella when she got out of balance and landed on her right hip.And had experienced limitation of movement on the right hip. The patient was then admitted due to the persistence of pain. The patient was previously hospitalized due to infected wound at the right ankle last 2002. No familial history of hypertension and bronchial asthma but is positive to diabetes mellitus of paternal side. Has no known food and drug allergies. The patient is non-smoker non-alcoholic beverages drinker.

1.3. Level of Growth and Development

1.3.1. Normal Growth and Development at particular stage Older Adult ( 65 Years old to death)

Physical Development

Perception of well-being can define quality of life. Understanding the older adults perception about health status is essential for accurate assessment and development of clinically relevant interventions. Older adults concepts of health generally depend on personal perceptions of functional ability. Therefore older adults engaged in activities of daily living usually consider themselves healthy, whereas those whose activities are limited by physical, emotional or social impairments may perceive themselves as ill. There are frequently observed physiological changes in order adults that are called normal. Finding these ―normal‖ changes during and assessment is not an expected. These physiological changes are not always pathological processes in themselves, but they may make older adults more vulnerable to some common clinical conditions and diseases. Some older adults experience all of these physiological changes, and others only experience only a few. The body changes continuously with age, and specific effects on particular older adults depend on health, lifestyle, stressors and environmental conditions.


the meaninges appear to thicken. Life long mental activity. or the ability to interpret the environment. largely because of the problem of retrieving information. blood flow to the brain decreases. A decline in intellectual abilities that interferes with social or occupational functions should always be regarded as abnormal. and learning. and brain metabolism slows. In addition. or the ability to know. people who develop integrity accept ―one‘s one and only life style‖. little is known about the effect of these physical changes on the cognitive functioning of the older adult. It is suggested that the older person mentally active to maintain cognitive ability at the highest possible level. According to Erikson. It is believe that there is a progressive loss of neurons. Changes in cognitive structure occur as a person ages. Perceptual capacity may be affected by changes in the nervous system as well. and despair as resulting in 6 . people who despair often believe they have made poor choices during life and wish they have made poor choices during life and wish they could live life over. the ability to perceive the environment and react appropriately is diminished. Older adults have more difficulty than younger ones in learning information they do not consider meaningful. memory. Older people need addition time for learning. helps the older person retain the high level of cognitive function and may help maintain a long-term memory. depends on the acuteness of the senses. is related to the perceptual ability. People who attain ego integrity view with a sense of wholeness and derive satisfaction from past accomplishment. As yet. Perception. Cognitive ability. Motivation is also important.Cognitive Development Intellectual capacity includes perception. Psychosocial Development According to Erikson. Robert Butler sees integrity and bringing serenity and wisdom. By contrast. If the aging person‘s senses are impaired. Cognitive impairment that interferes with normal life is not considered part of normal aging. They view death as an acceptable completion. the developmental task at this time is ego integrity versus despair. particularly verbal activity. cognitive.

In contrast. whereas older person‘s at stage 7 may act to meet another‘s need as well as their own. moral development is completed in the early adult years. Spiritual Development Murray and Zentner write that the elderly person with a mature religious outlook striver to incorporate views of theology and religious action into thinking. An elderly person at the preconventional level obeys roles to avoid pain and the displeasure of others. and some are at the preconventional level. Many couples rely increasingly on their mates for this company and may have few outside friends. Many are capable and manage to live alone.the inability to accept one‘s fate. this couragement. Emotional Development Well-adjusted aging couples usually thrive on companionship. and a sense that one‘s life has been worthless. When a mate dies. on younger family members increases as age advances and in health occurs. and loneliness. Moral Development According to Kohlberg. At stage one. Some widows and widower remarry. particularly the latter. however. a person defines good and bad in relation to self. Most old people stay at Kohlberg‘s conventional development. the remaining partner inevitably experiences feelings of loss. Elderly people at the conventional level follow society‘s rules of conduct to expectation of others. Great bonds if affection and closeness can develop during this period of aging together and nurturing each other. the elderly person who has not 7 . because the widowers are less inclined than widows to maintain a household. reliance. The elderly person also derives a sense of worth by sharing experiences or views. Despair gives rise of frustration. emptiness. Elderly people can contemplate new religious and philosophical views and try to understand ideas missed previously or interpreted differently.

on interest earlier in life. Those who were younger had a higher prevalence of stroke than comparable controls. sexual activity does become less frequent. 80‘s. Some changes. Psychosexual Development Sex drives persist into the 70‘s. Interest in sexual activity in old age depends. However. Changes in the gonads of elderly women result from diminished secretion of the ovarian hormones. they were in poorer physical state and their skinfold thickness was less. and lubricating vaginal secretions are reduced. 3. 8 . Physical problems such as diabetes. The type of fall leading to the fracture varied with age—tripping was the commonest cause in the younger patients and ‗drop attacks‘ in the older. and ovaries. such as the shrinking of the uterus.1. The breasts atrophy. Other changes are obvious. The older patients had a very high prevalence of pyramidal tract abnormality associated with chronic brain syndrome—and it appears that these demented patients fall not because of mental confusion but because of associated motor abnormalities. arthritis. go unnoticed. Many factors may play a rate in the ability of an elderly person to engage in sexual activity. They also had more unrecognized visual disorders. people who are sexually active in young and middle adulthood will remain active during their later years.2. and respiratory conditions affect energy or the physical ability to participate in sexual activity. Reduced natural lubrication is the cause of painful intercourse. provided that the health is good and an interested partner is available. Ill Person at the Particular Age of Patient The older fracture patients showed a higher prevalence of chronic brain syndrome.matured spiritually may not matured spiritually may feel impoverishment or despair as the drive for economic and professional success wares. which often necessities the use of lubricating jellies. Both stroke and partial sightedness were associated with falls due to loss of balance. in large measure. That is. and 90‘s.

Ertra-capsular fractures occur in older patients. They are more likely to have a history of falls but previous fracture is equally common at this age in the fracture and control series. 9 .

1 Normal Anatomy and Physiology of Organ/ System Affected The word skeleton comes from the Greek word meaning ―dried. Pathophysiology and Rationale 4. the boned that form the longitudinal axis of the body. The skeleton is subdivided into three divisions: the axial skeleton. it is perfectly adapted for its functions of body protection and motion. cartilages. The joints give the body flexibility and allow 18 . Shaped by an event that happened more than one million years ago – when a being first stood erect on hind legs – our skeleton is a tower of bones arranged so that we can stand upright and balance ourselves. In addition to bones. yet light.up body‖. Strong. the skeletal system includes joints. the bones of the limbs and girdles.4. and the appendicular skeleton. and ligaments (fibrous cords that bind the bones together at joints). our internal framework is so beautifully designed and engineered and it puts any modern skyscraper to shame.

Classification of Bones The diaphysis. In adult bones.movement to occur. in infants this areas forms blood cells. leaving the epiphyseal lines to mark their previous location. makes up most of the bones length and is composed of compact bone. This is the epiphyseal line. In adults. Bone is one of the hardest materials in the body. storage and blood cell formation. Articular cartilage. By the end of puberty. and red marrow is found these. instead of periosteum. when hormones stop long bone growth. red marrow is confined to the cavities of spongy bone of flat bones and the epiphyses some long bones. or bones perform several important body functions such as support. The diaphysis is covered and protected by a fibrous connective tissue membrane. whereas the organic parts (especially the collagen fibers) provide for bone‘s flexibility and great tensile strength. Hundreds of connective tissue fibers. growing bone. Each epiphyses consist of a thin layer of compact bone enclosing the area filled with spongy bone. there is a thin line of bony tissue spanning the epiphyses that looks a bit different from the rest of the bone in that area. It is called the yellow marrow. The calcium salts deposited in the matrix bone its hardness. slippery surface that decreases friction at joint surfaces. called Sharpey‘s fibers. covers its external surface. the periosteum. protection. The epiphyseal line is a remnant of the epiphyseal plate (a flat plate of hyaline cartilage) seen in young. or medullary. it provides a smooth. Besides contributing to body shape and form. epiphyseal plates have been completely replaced by bone. it has a remarkable ability to resist tension and other forces acting on it. 19 . movement. Nature has given us an extremely strong and exceptionally simple (almost crude) supporting system without up mobility. and although relatively light in weight. The epiphyses are the ends of the long bone. Epiphyseal plates cause the lengthwise growth of the long bone. secure the periosteum to the underlying bone. In adult bones. Because the articular cartilage is glassy hyaline cartilage. or shaft. the cavity of the shaft is primarily a storage area for adipose (fat) tissue.

With seer circulatory compromise.3 Pathophysiology Femoral neck fractures occur most commonly after falls. Osteoporosis is the most important risk factor that contributes to hip fractures. such as an osteoporotic bone. Fatigue fractures are a result of an increased or abnormal stress placed on a normal bone. e. as occur in the hip. bone scans have been recommended as diagnostic tools to determine the orability of the femoral need. than in those treated after that tine period. Femoral neck fractures can also be related to chronic stress instead of a single traumatic event. 22 . The resulting stress fractures can be divided into fatigue fractures and insufficiency fractures. Physical deconditioning. avascular (ischemic) necrosis may result.4. Whereas insufficiency fractures are due to normal stresses placed on diseased bone. In this location.. This condition decreases bone strength and.

Buck‘s extension. The preoperative objective is to ensure that the patient is in as favorable a condition as possible for the surgery. may be applied to reduce muscle spasm. The findings of a recent study suggested that there is no benefit to the routine use of preparative skin traction for patients with hip fractures and that the use of skin traction should be based as evaluation of the individual patient. Surgical intervention is carried out as soon as possible after injury. Nursing Interventions 1. with reduction and internal fixation performed within 12 to 24 hours after fracture. Surgical treatment consists of (1) open or closed reduction of the fracture and internal fixation (2) replacement of the femoral head with a prosthesis (hemiarthroplasty). The goal of surgical treatment of hip fractures is to obtain a satisfactory fixation so that the patient can be mobilized quickly and avoid secondary medical complications. Hemiarthroplasty (replacement of the head of the femur with prosthesis) is usually reserved for fractures that cannot be satisfactorily reduced or securely nailed or o avoid complications of non-union and avascular necrosis of the head of the femur. multiple pins. Displaced femoral neck fractures may be treated as emergencies. to immobilize the extremity. Adequate reduction is important for fracture healing (the better the reduction. and to relieve pain. or compression screw devices. After general or spinal anesthesia.

The physician prescribes the degree of weight bearing and the rate at which the patient can progress to full weight bearing. The amount of weight bearing that can be permitted depends on the stability of the fracture reduction. This device helps strengthening the arms and shoulders in preparation for protected ambulation (e.
