We describe a distinct variant of an impacted intracapsular hip fracture that is difficult to classify within any of the current fracture classification systems. Instead of impaction occurring laterally, as generally occurs with a Garden grade I fracture, there is medial impaction. We have termed this a varus impacted fracture. Nineteen such fractures were identified. The majority of these patients presented with a history of progressive hip pain over several days without a definite history of trauma. For the 16 fractures treated by internal fixation without any attempt at fracture reduction, fracture heating occurred in 11 cases. (c) 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
