Minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis of subtrochanteric
femur fractures with a locking plate: A prospective series of 20 fractures.
Bisphosphonate associated fractures commonly involve lower extremities particularly seen in femur subtrochanteric
We report on a 17-year-old man who underwent prophylactic fixation of the incomplete subtrochanteric
femur fracture produced by a low-velocity gunshot.
Of these, 168 patients underwent THA, including 26 cases of femoral neck fracture, 101 cases of femoral head necrosis, 16 cases of osteoarthritis, 25 cases of congenital hip dysplasia, and 6 cases of intraoperative subtrochanteric
The standard gamma nail or the Medoff sliding plate for unstable trochanteric and subtrochanteric
The agency convened the joint meeting to evaluate particular concerns about the long-term use of bisphosphonate drugs, given reports of atypical subtrochanteric
and femoral fractures, jaw osteonecrosis, and esophageal cancer associated with bisphosphonate use.
Of the reviewed fractures, the researchers identified 135 as atypical, based on their location in the diaphyseal portion of the femur, either in the shaft or subtrochanteric
region, as well as other features: a transverse fracture, usually with lateral cortical thickening especially at the fracture site, and flaring of the lateral cortex, Dr.
Also muscle and subtrochanteric
forces were applied to model and pelvis bone was constrained in all directions as shown in Fig.
Distraction with the Ilizarov fixator through an osteotomy in the subtrochanteric
area continued 48 days to obtain 4 cm of lengthening and was followed by supportive compression.
