Distal femoral fractures may be treated by operative or nonoperative methods. There is no single surgical implant that can be used for all distal femoral fractures. Implant selection is determined by fracture pattern, patient age, bone density, and other injuries that the patient may have sustained. Rewarding results may be obtained with operative fracture intervention when appropriate patient and implant selection is made and the surgeon demonstrates meticulous skill and sound judgment.
