Answer . Between your knee and hip.. It is also the longest bone in you body.. By Jens Radda It is the top bone in the leg. femurs are the biggest bones in the body which are in your leg and also in Egypt they needed big femurs to make pyramids and stuff . A BONE IN THE BODY
bilateral = both sides . Fracture = broken or cracked . Radius = one of the bones in your forearm
Mineralogically speaking, fracture means the characteristicappearance of the surface of a freshly broken mineral or rock. Itcan also mean the manner in which a mineral or rock naturallybreaks. Synonyms of fracture include, but are notlimited to: splinter, smash, split, rupture, and shatter.… (MORE)
You can get comfrey and calendula (marigold flowers) from an herb store and make a poultice. Just brew the herbs 1 part herb and 3 parts water like tea. Do not boil. Let cool, repeat. Get as much herb on a paper towel/rag as you can and wrap it around the affected area. keep in place with an ace ban…dage or the like. Keep it on as long as possible. My husband had a broken ankle and was out of pain in 48 hrs.. However, if you do not get this properly aligned by a vet, the bone may not grow back straight and the dog may have athritis and pain for the rest of it's life. It is very important that the bone is straight (set) properly. Also the femoral artery runs very close to the femur and if the jagged part of the bone were to cut it, the dog could bleed to death in minutes. (MORE)
The femur allows you to walk, jump, kick, swim, and do other activities that involve your leg. The femur is a bone in the leg. It helps to give the leg structure and to protect what's underneath it, like blood vessels.
The femur helps support the weight of your body, and forms anattachment for the thigh and knee joint to move.
Identification . The femur is attached to the pelvis and knee cap, which makes it the longest bone in the body. The National Space Biomedical Research Institute states the average adult femur measures 20 inches and is more than 1 inch in width.. Stability . The femur connects to the pelvis so…cket, which creates the hip joint. This joint provides the entire body with stability, especially during moments of intense movement.. Knee Movement . The front of the femur is shaped to support the patella, or kneecap. When a leg is extended, the grooves in the front of the femur allow the patella to safely move upward. When the knee is bent, the groove allows the patella to move downward. The movement of the patella supported by the femur enables efficiency of the leg muscles, according to Health Line.. (MORE)
The femur, which is part of the upper thigh, is the largest bone in the human body. It performs various functions that help maintain mobility.
Bilateral = both sides . Fracture = broken, cracked . Someone has pretty much the same injury om both left and rightside.
You must mean "femur," which is "the longest and thickest bone of the human skeleton; extends from the pelvis to the knee" (Word Web); apparently some folks choose to spell it "femure" but that's not in the dictionary.
Its unclear what you mean by "crest". The human femur has over 25 named aspects referring to different areas, ridges, sides,etc. of the bone. Some of these are where the bone connects to another bone, others are places where muscles attach. The names are importent so doctors and scientists can talk …about all these parts of the bone and know what one another is referring to. For example, if a doctor says, "there is a fracture of the medial epicondyle of the patient's femur," other doctors can know what he's talking about. One named aspect of the femur is the intertrocanteric crest which bridges the greater and lesser trochanters on the proximal posterior side of the femur and acts as the attachment site for the quadratus femoris muscle.

It's a fracture in the upper thigh bone, a crack running down both sides of it.
The femur makes up about 1/4 of a person's overall height and... The femur is the strongest bone in the body... Also the femur has the patella at the bottom and the pelvis at the top of it.
This does not sound like a good idea. The femur is a weight bearing bone. The only way to heal a stress fracture in the femur is by rest. Physical activity would not only delay the healing but could result in a more serious injury. I am not a doctor so I would not give out any medical advice. But m…y guess is a doctor would advise against ANY physical activity for several weeks.. Could you play soccer? Maybe. But why would you want to knowing the risks involved? (MORE)
It is a bony prominence that has many muscle attachments that allow the femur to move.
potentially all of it... Or at least enough to make the heart stop pumping it
Without an x-ray or special tools you will not get a definite answer. But you can come close to it by....measuring between the dynamic center of the hip (center between crotch and belt line) and the lower condyle's contact surface with the tibial contact surface (bend your knee and find the center o…f the joint).

the femur is the thighbone & there is only 1 per thigh. the lower leg has 2 bones: the tibia & the fibula. answer your looking for is right or left depending on the view of the femur.
The Femur extends from the hip joint to the knee joint and is the longest and strongest bone in the body.
The femur is the strongest and thickest bone in the body. It can take about 600 LBS of vertical force before it breaks. That pretty much means that if you set it up so it was horizontal, with a space in between the things holding it up, and put 600 pounds on it, it would snap. That's strong.
The structure of femur include a ball-and-socket synovial joint. Itis a round, cup-shaped structure on the hip bone known as theacetabulum.
Bilateral means both sides. Femur is your hip. Someone with bilateral femur fracture and blood loss is someone who is bleeding(internally) from having broken the hip on both sides. The amount of blood lose can vary.
Literally means "break". In geology it can be a tension-crack by dessication or tectonic forces in a sediment or precipitation-formation; or a cooling-contraction crack in igneous rock (think Giant's Causeway). It can also be a Fault - a major cross-formation break with accompanying displacement o…f one side against the other, caused tectonically by crustal deformation. (MORE)
In an adult it takes about 2000 lb psi (per square inch)to break a femur
A fracture is a disruption in the structure of a bone. For example a crack or a break in a bone. A femur fracture is therefor a crack or break in the femur.
external rotation and shortening of the affected leg, pain on any movement, tenderness on palpation of anterior and lateral aspects of the affectedt hip, the greater trochanter is elevated on the affected side, inability to mobilise.
Your femur, or thighbone, is the largest bone in your body. We have 2 femur, 1 each leg. The head of your femur fits into your hip socket and the bottom end connects to your knee.
A femur fracture is very painful due to the large muscles causing the bone ends to over ride each other. The sharp bone ends now dig into the muscle and nerves causing pain and bleeding. The traction splint is used to reduce the pain, prevent further injury of nerves, and to control bleeding by pull…ing traction and placing the bones in line. There is no need for this on a femoral neck, also known as a hip fracture, due to lack of large muscle groups in this part of the anatomy. Therefore, a simple padded board splint is all that is necessary. Simple rule to guide you is that if there is angulation and muscle binding, then use the traction splint. (MORE)
she has been in an orthotic outer devise, so farno new bone growth has shown up on the xrays?
Well, thighbone is the most obvious one, since it is your thigh's bone, but I don't think it has any really special nickname.
Simply put, it is easier to break any length of uniform material inthe middle third than at the ends. The greater the distance fromthe end point of the material to the potential fracture point, thegreater torque that is able to be applied. So it takes less forceto apply the necessary torque to fract…ure the bone in the middlethird than it does near the ends. (MORE)
The femur is a very large bone. Depending upon the extent of the fracture and the repair made to it, it could take as little as 8 weeks to 6 months.
The femur is the largest bone in the body; it's your "thigh bone", above the knee attaching to the hip.
No, that is actually a common mistake people make. You never really mix it up unless your are actually researching the human body. The femur is actually super narrow, that's what they get mixed up.
You'd fall over, or at least have to hop. The femur is the bone in your upper leg, otherwise known as the thigh bone. The femur is the largest and strongest bone in the human body. If a femur is damaged, by trauma or disease, a femur prosthesis (artifical femur bone) can be implanted.
Yes the femur can be considered an organ. Think of it this way, the definition of a tissue is a group of functionally related cells and their extracellular material (or intercellular products) which in turn together have a common function. The definition of an organ is a group of different tissues w…hich together have a common function. And of course an organ system is many different organs working together for a common function (to support the organism) Bone tissue, or osseous tissue is the major component of the skeletal system. However, its not the only tissue that resides within the skeletal system. Although the femur is primarily composed of bone tissue, it is not the only tissue type found within it. For example, periosteum (dense irregular connective tissue) and also the medullary canal (filled with adipose, again, spongy or cancellous bone (found mainly in the epiphysis sections) contains myeloid connective tissue. Coming back to the definition stated above, yes the femur is composed of many different tissues, which have a common function. The skeletal system is made up of all the bones in the body. This is because why? thinking again back to the above definition, an organ system is made of different organs which have a common function, and those different organs are different bones. So yes, the femur can be considered an organ :) (MORE)
Yes. But it is a vestigial structure, meaning the ancestors needed them, but they are useless to the current creature.
maxilla surrounds a number of bones in the face serving as a central anchor so to speak and it breaking results in damage to those other bones. the femur is less attached to as many bones..
The femur lies between the hip and the knee. It is the only bone in the upper leg.
Its almost right next to your femoral artery. You puncture that and you die quickly and painlessly in three minutes.
A femur fracture is critical, period. To have two femur fractures doubles their chances of possibly having a severed artery, and bleeding out.
A fractured femur can result in 1500 to 3000 mL of hemorrhage. If an artery or vein has been ruptured on the fracture, depends on the extension and seriousness of it. Normally bone fractures do not involves haemorrage, but on the event of a blood vessel rupturing, the seriousness and amount of blood… loss is associated to the diameter of the vessel, (artery or vein.). A broken femur can easily result in the loss of 1L or more of blood into the soft tissues of the thigh (Emergency: Care and Transportation of the Sick and Injured. Pollak, Andrew N. 2011). (MORE)
The femur is the biggest bone in the body and is known as the thigh bone in common terms. The humerus is the bone that is attached to The scapula by the glenohumeral joint.
The nursing diagnosis for fracture of the neck or femur is acute pain, decreased mobility, decreased stability and overall crankiness. Fractures need to be treated until self care can be established.
Why take a risk when it comes to your health? As the word "stress" you are definetly abusing the normal wear and tear of your body. Slow down, take it easy, go and see an orthopedic doctor and listen well. Do what the MD says, after all it is your body and you know what? Later in life you will eithe…r do the right thing now or suffer later. (MORE)
The femoral artery runs right along the femur. A fracture in the femur might damage the artery leading to massive internal bleeding, as the femoral artery is one of the largest arteries in your body.
Yes, the femur runs from the stifle (the equivalent of the knee in a human back to the point of the rump (the human seat bones/hip) in the back leg.
The femur, thigh bone, is the longest bone in the body. What the femur does is allows movement to be made in the legs. This makes running, walking, standing, skipping, and jumping possible.
The proper term for Orthopedic Implants for fractures of neck and femur is called 'intramedullary implants'. These are not unpopular as it takes specialists to make these properly.
The term refers to something snaped /broken i.e. a fractured arm isin fact a break in one of the bones. It also refers to any soliditem that breaks. i.e a bridge support may, under certainsituations fracture (break)
