Open Subtrochanteric Femur Fracture

This young gentleman came to us with this thigh fracture with his bone protruding out of his thigh after a motorbike accident. We did the surgery the same day.

This is the X-rays before the surgery.

We decided for long proximal femoral nail as intraoperatively we noticed that there is extension of the fracture which prevented us from using a shorter nail.

This is the xray with the implant in situ. Patient started walking the next day with crutches.
