BACKGROUND: Trochanteric entry femoral nails have been increasing in popularity in the pediatric population for stabilization in fractures and osteotomies. The proper position for entry point in the coronal plane has been well studied; however, the sagittal plane in the pediatric population has not yet been well characterized. METHODS: Eighty-eight cadaveric femora aged 8 to 20 years were studied in an apparent neck-shaft angle (ANSA) position, with distal condyles flat on the surface, and a true neck-shaft angle (TNSA) position, with internal rotation to neutralize femoral anteversion...

Internal fixation of these fractures using locking plates has become popular. The purpose of this study was to evaluate a consecutive series of periprosthetic supracondylar femoral fractures treated with locked periarticular plate fixation with regard to surgical procedure, complications and clinical outcome...
