A 75-year-old man presents with a displaced femoral neck fracture. During your surgical exposure for a hemiarthroplasty, the femoral neck has fractured through a pathologic lesion which is diagnosed as a lymphoma on frozen section. The lesion is located in the center of the femoral neck and the calcar femorale is not involved. Your treatment should include:
Closure of the wound and chemotherapy
Radical resection of the proximal femur and megaprothesis hemiarthroplasty
Hemiarthroplasty with postoperative staging and chemo-radiotherapy as indicated
Bone marrow transplantation
