Description

Complex pertrochanteric femoral fractures (CPTFF) are common and complicated with osteoporosis, short segment fixation, muscle pull, and bone comminution/loss.  We describe predictable and successful plating and nailing tips and trips with cases.  Furthermore, we describe techniques for successful revision of complications especially nail cut out, poor start site, and varus/apex anterior deformity with or without leg length inequality.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Participants will learn how to successfully treat CPTFF with locking plates.
  2. Participants will learn how to successfully treat CPTFF with intramedullary nails.
  3. Participants will learn how to successfully treat CPTFF complications such as poor start site and varus/apex anterior deformity with or without leg length inequality.
