Краткое описание

We report the case of a 54-year-old man who developed femoral head collapse after removal of a Kuntscher nail used to fix a shaft femoral fracture that occurred 35 years earlier. The removal of fixation devices implanted several years earlier can be a difficult procedure and can expose patients to several complications. Literature is still controversial regarding the correct timing and indications. It is mandatory to evaluate potential complications and inform the patients before undertaking this procedure when really necessary.
