A proximal femur fracture is a hip fracture that occurs in the upper part of the thigh bone, next to the hip joint. It is a common condition particularly in elderly females, often related to osteoporosis, and is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in these patients throughout the world.
This book is a practical guide to proximal femoral fractures, describing in detail, the treatment modalities and surgical procedures for different types of fracture.
Beginning with an introduction to anatomy, epidemiology and the principles of treatment, the following sections describe the management and rehabilitation of fractures in different parts of the upper femur.
Enhanced by more than 700 full colour images and illustrations, this concise, practical guide covers proximal femoral fractures in both paediatric and geriatric patients.
