Lateral cortical notching in specific cases of delayed unions or nonunions after intertrochanteric and reversed fractures


Stabilization of both intertrochanteric and reversed trochanteric fractures is commonly performed by proximal femoral nailing. However, biomechanics significantly differ between these two fracture types. In this study we report on the occurrence of delayed union or nonunion after inter- or reversed trochanteric fractures in eight patients (7 females and 1… (More)
