The purpose of this study is to assess the reoperation rate of fractures that have occurred at the neck of the femur that are treated with the CONQUEST FN Femoral Neck Fracture System. The CONQUEST FN Femoral Neck Fracture System is approved for use by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It consists of a stainless steel plate and up to three (3) screws intended to treat both non-displaced and displaced fractures to the femoral neck.

Official Title

A Multicenter, Post Market, Prospective Study Evaluating Safety and Efficacy of CONQUEST FN for the Treatment of Intracapsular Femoral Neck Fractures


The CONQUEST FN™ represents the next generation femoral neck fracture system designed to offer better intra-operative reduction control with the assurance of eliminating device failure modes. This system is dedicated to treating both non-displaced and displaced intracapsular fractures of the femoral neck. It is a dynamic locked implant system that provides multiple points of fixed angle support with continuous compression across the fracture site, ensuring bone-on-bone contact during the fracture union process. The continuous fracture site compression and post-operative reduction maintenance is accomplished with the incorporation of telescoping compression screw technology. The novel system empowers surgeons to address the current surgical challenges and often unfavorable patient outcomes and high re-operation rate associated with the current treatment options for intracapsular femoral neck fractures.

This study will evaluate the re-operation rate for any reason of displaced and non-displaced femoral neck fractures treated with the CONQUEST FN Femoral Neck Fracture System at one year post-operation.
