Treatment of Non Unions of Subtrochanteric Fractures Using an Anatomical Proximal Femur Locked Compression Plate – A Prospective Study of 13 Patients

Treatment of subtrochanteric fracture non unions using a proximal femur plate – A case series of 13 cases. Sub-trochanteric non unions are not uncommon as was once reported. Although the conventional and current implant of choice is Intramedullary nailing (IM/IL nail) following open reduction, the use of the PF-LCP has produced results similar to those of IM nails. Hence, for the appropriate patient choice, the PF-LCP is a newer and proven implant to use for excellent outcomes.
