Author(s): Shrihari LK, Manjunath Daragad, Sunil Mannual and Kiran Hari
Abstract: Case report: We present here a 74-year female patient with reverse oblique, comminuted fracture with failed internal fixation managed with calcar substituting long stem bipolar prosthesis with one year follow up with good functional result. Conclusion: Arthroplasty is an effective salvage option for elderly patients with osteoporotic unstable intertrochanteric fractures leading to early ambulation and fewer complications.
