A 76-year-old male community ambulatory presented to clinic complaining of pain in the left groin that has been persistent for the last 8 months. Radiographs obtained from clinic are seen in Figure A. You suspect a femoral neck nonunion and obtain a CT scan which confirmed it. Which of the following statements is true?
Total hip arthroplasty will provide patient with the best long term outcomes
Valgus malreduction is closely correlated with failure of fixation after reduction and cannulated screw fixation
The patient's best outcome would be with an open reduction, bone grafting, and changing to an inverted triangle configuration of screws
The most appropriate treatment is a valgus osteotomy to correct malreduction
Providing this patient with a hemiarthroplasty increases rates of postoperative dislocation when comparing to total hip arthroplasty
