Retrograde nailing for distal femur fractures in the elderly.
We report the results of treating a series of 56 fractures in 54 elderly patients with a distal femur fracture with a retrograde femoral nail.

Clinical and Radiologic Outcomes among Bipolar Hemiarthroplasty, Compression Hip Screw and Proximal Femur Nail Antirotation in Treating Comminuted Intertrochanteric Fractures.
In comminuted intertrochanteric fractures, various operative options have been introduced. The purpose of this study was to determine whether there were differences in clinical and radiologic outcomes among bipolar hemiarthroplasty (BH), compression

Twenty patients with intertrochanteric fractures of the femur were treated by external fixation. They were selected because of their surgical risk and evaluated clinically and radiographically after 6,12 and 18 weeks. Fourteen out of twenty patients

Clinical and functional comparison of endoprosthetic replacement with intramedullary nailing for treating proximal femur metastasis.
To evaluate the clinical and functional outcomes of modular endoprosthetic replacement (EPR) compared to proximal femur intramedullary nailing (IMN) for the treatment of proximal femur metastases.

Proximal Femur Locking Plate for Sub-Trochanteric Femur Fractures: Factors Associated with Failure.
Proximal femur locking compression plates (PF-LCP) have gained popularity since their inception due to superior biomechanical stability and durability but clinical experience has shown conflicting results including implant failure.

Bilateral simultaneous intertrochanteric fractures of femur without major trauma.
Bilateral simultaneous intertrochanteric femur fractures are rare and usually occur as a result of major trauma. In this paper, we present a 76-year old male patient from Turkey referred to the emergency service of our hospital with severe pain and p

Revision arthroplasty in periprosthetic fractures of the proximal femur.
Hip revision arthroplasty of a loose stem in the case of Vancouver type B2 and B3 periprosthetic fractures and cerclage wiring of the femoral shaft.

A retrospective analysis of the InterTan nail and proximal femoral nail anti-rotation-Asia in the treatment of unstable intertrochanteric femur fractures in the elderly.
The purpose of this study was to compare the clinical outcomes of elderly patients undergoing surgery for treatment of unstable trochanteric fractures receiving either proximal femoral nails anti-rotation-Asia (PFNA-IIs) or InterTan nails (ITs).

Comparative prospective study of proximal femoral nail and dynamic hip screw in treatment of intertrochanteric fracture femur.
The aim of this study was to compare the outcome of intertrochanteric fractures treated with Dynamic Hip Screw and Proximal Femoral nail.

Extra Articular Supracondylar Femur Fractures Managed with Locked Distal Femoral Plate or Supracondylar Nailing: A Comparative Outcome Study.
Despite recent evolution in the operating techniques and surgical implants, debate continues around the choice of implant for management of distal femur fractures. High rates of complications and union difficulties continues to make them a momentous
