Abstract: Pseudarthrosis of the femoral neck is a fairly common complication of fracture of the femoral neck. It is defined by the absence or cessation of consolidation of a true cervical fracture. The period of consolidation is quite subjective, and three or four months after we accept evolution without consolidation, there is pseudarthrosis. Through 14 cases collected in our service, we will discuss the clinical and radiological arguments posed an indication of the total hip prosthesis in the femoral neck and we will evaluate the success rate of the latter compared to conservative treatment. The functional results were evaluated according to the Merle d'Aubigne.
