Proximal Femur Head Plate
|Left Right||4 to 14|
Intertrochanteric and sub trochanteric fractures account for 50% of all fractures of the proximal femur. They are due to high energy trauma in the young patients, while in elderly patients, they are often caused by low energy trauma like slip and fall in osteoporotic bone. Surgical treatment is the preferred method in these fractures to reduce the complications of prolonged immobilization like deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, respiratory tract infections and bed sores.
