Abstract: Intracapsular femoral neck fractures are seen commonly in elderly people following a low energy trauma. 2-3% of all femoral neck fractures occurs in adults younger than 50 years and is often the result of high-energy trauma. Femoral neck fracture continues to be considered as an unsolved fracture in view of poor prognosis and variable outcome reported after different procedures. In developing countries the fracture often remains untreated as the patients do not seek treatment due to nonavailability of treatment facility or may be treated primarily by osteopaths or operated under suboptimal theatre conditions with poor quality implants. We prospectively studied the outcome of 54 patients managed with non vascularised fibular graft and cancellous screws between 2010-2015. ANOVA test was used as a test of significance and functional results were assessed by Modified Askin and Bryan criteria. To conclude, in patients younger than 60 years of age with neglected femoral neck fracture, non vascularised fibular graft acts as a reliable biological implant for revascularisation and gives excellent functional outcome.
