Pertrochanteric fractures account approximately a half of the proximal femoral fractures. Incidence of these fractures is highest in women, age > 65 years and presents a mortality rate of 14 to 50%. Treatment goals include stable fixation, immediate mobilization and restore activities. Complications after treatment present in 17% and include: nonunion, cut out and varus displacement. OBJECTIVE: Correlation between complications after surgical treatment and presence of instability, inadequate reduction, Tip Apex Index (TAI) > 25 mm, Tip Apex Index to calcar (TAIcal) > 20 mm and parker index...

INTRODUCTION: Some patients with a hip fracture also present a concomitant upper limb fracture. We want to know whether these patients have a worse functional level and whether they have any differences in various clinical parameters compared with patients with an isolated hip fracture. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 1061 discharge reports from the Orthogeriatrics Unit. We collected information on several clinical parameters of the fractures. Subsequently, we performed a statistical analysis of the data by comparing the associated fracture group with the isolated fracture group...

INTRODUCTION: Formal training for surgeons regarding intraoperative imaging is lacking. This project investigated the effect of an educational intervention focusing on obtaining and assessing a standardized lateral view of the proximal femur during intramedullary nailing of a pertrochanteric fracture. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Anatomical landmarks of the proximal femur that can be identified using intraoperative fluoroscopy and criteria for image quality, i.e. quality of projection were defined in a consensus process, followed by the development of educational materials and a 7-item checklist...

With the introduction of the World Hip Trauma Evaluation Four clinical trial, fixation of pertrochanteric neck of femur fractures is becoming a hot topic. In this trial, the novel X-Bolt expanding bolt implant is being compared with the current gold standard of a sliding hip screw. We present a previously undescribed complication when inserting the bolt into the femoral head, where the expandable wings penetrate the femoral neck due to misplacement of the bone crusher or the X-Bolt prosthesis. This unforeseen complication required the introduction of several additional corrective intraoperative steps...

BACKGROUND: Management of unstable pertrochanteric fractures remains a challenge with various implant choices. Intramedullary devices are usually preferred for the management of the unstable fractures. When nailing is unsuitable for the configuration of the fracture extra medullary procedures are preferred. PFLCP is a contact limited implant that allows multiple angularly stable fixations with preserving more bone stock after implantation as an extramedullary implant. There are only a few reports in the literature about the osteosynthesis of unstable trochanteric fractures with proximal femoral locking compression plates and their results are conflicting...

BACKGROUND: In treatment of unstable trochanteric fractures dynamic hip screw and Medoff sliding plate devices are designed to allow secondary fracture impaction, whereas intramedullary nails aim to maintain fracture alignment. Different treatment protocols are used by two similar Swedish regional emergency care hospitals. Dynamic hip screw is used for fractures considered as stable within the respective treatment protocol, whereas one treatment protocol (Medoff sliding plate/dynamic hip screw) uses biaxial Medoff sliding plate for unstable pertrochanteric fractures and uniaxial Medoff sliding plate for subtrochanteric fractures, the second (intramedullary nail/dynamic hip screw) uses intramedullary nail for subtrochanteric fractures and for pertrochanteric fractures with intertrochanteric comminution or subtrochanteric extension...

INTRODUCTION: Vascular complications after femoral fixation are rare and not only easy to recognize but also potentially life-threatening. The aim of this case report is to describe how a pseudoaneurysm of the deep femoral artery can complicate an intramedullary nailing after a pertrochanteric fracture and how it can be treated. CASE REPORT: We report the case of a 90-year-old female who developed a pseudoaneurysm of the profunda femoris artery 16 days after intramedullary femoral nailing for a pertrochanteric hip fracture...

OBJECTIVES: Intramedullary fixation is considered the most stable treatment for pertrochanteric fractures of the proximal femur and cut-out is one of the most frequent mechanical complications. In order to determine the role of clinical variables and radiological parameters in predicting the risk of this complication, we analysed the data pertaining to a group of patients recruited over the course of six years. METHODS: A total of 571 patients were included in this study, which analysed the incidence of cut-out in relation to several clinical variables: age; gender; the AO Foundation and Orthopaedic Trauma Association classification system (AO/OTA); type of nail; cervical-diaphyseal angle; surgical wait times; anti-osteoporotic medication; complete post-operative weight bearing; and radiological parameters (namely the lag-screw position with respect to the femoral head, the Cleveland system, the tip-apex distance (TAD), and the calcar-referenced tip-apex distance (CalTAD))...
