Mueller, Franz and Pfeifer, Christian and Kinner, Bernd and Englert, Carsten and Nerlich, Michael and Neumann, Carsten (2011) Post-traumatic fulminant paradoxical fat embolism syndrome in conjunction with asymptomatic atrial septal defect: a case report and review of the literature. Journal of medical case reports 5 (1), p. 142.
Fat embolism syndrome may occur as a fulminant complication following femoral fracture repair in the presence of a concomitant atrial septal defect with right-to-left shunt. Thus, in patients with cardiac right-to-left shunts, femurs should not be nailed intramedullary, not even in cases of isolated injuries.
