The purpose of this presentation is to describe the Gotfried (nonanatomical) reduction technique of unstable subcapital femoral fractures. In addition, to report, retrospectively, on the radiological outcomes of displaced subcapital femoral fractures reduced with the Gotfried reduction method. The technique involves creation of a positive buttress between the proximal and distal fracture parts to prevent future reduction deterioration once fracture line bone resorption takes place as well as… CONTINUE READING
