The lateral radiograph is useful in predicting shortening in 31A2 pertrochanteric hip fractures.
BACKGROUND We sought to determine if angulation or translation measured on the lateral preoperative injury radiographs of patients with 31A2 pertrochanteric fractures is related to excessiveExpand

144 – IS ANGULATION ON THE LATERAL HIP RADIOGRAPH RELATED TO FRACTURE INSTABILITY? A RETROSPECTIVE RADIOGRAPHIC REVIEW OF 31-A2 INTERTROCHANTERIC FRACTURES
Purpose: The purpose of this study is to provide an additional tool to determine the stability of AO 31A2 pertrochanteric hip fractures. This study is based on the lateral hip radiograph, which hasExpand
