Subcapital hip fractures in younger patients are generally treated with internal fixation rather than with primary hemiarthroplasty, which is generally reserved for older, low-demand patients. Avascular necrosis can occur following this injury because of disruption of the femoral head blood supply. Some believe that emergent fracture reduction is necessary to minimize the risk of avascular necrosis.

[Trochanteric femoral fractures].

Acta Chir Orthop Traumatol Cech 2013 ;80(1):15-26

At the present time proximal femoral fractures account for 30% of all fractures referred to hospitals for treatment. Our population is ageing, the proportion of patients with post-menopausal or senile osteoporosis is increasing and therefore the number of proximal femoral fractures requiring urgent treatment is growing too. In the age category of 50 years and older, the incidence of these fractures has increased exponentially.

The importance of the greater trochanter and its attached abductor muscles for physiological gait is well accepted. However the influence of a displaced greater trochanter fracture after a pertrochanteric fracture is unknown. The aim of this study is to determine if there is an association between the greater trochanter position and the level of patient mobility following internal fixation of pertrochanteric fractures.
