Author(s): Shrihari L Kulkarni, Sunil Mannual, Manjunath Daragad and Akshay Kumar
Abstract: The incidence of periprosthetic fractures around the femoral stem is increasing. These are very challenging fractures and need adequate surgical expertise. There is no clear consensus regarding the management of these fractures, especially Vancouver type-B fractures. We report a case of Vancouver type-B1 fracture managed only with locked compression plate in a 70-year-old man. Fracture united at 3 months and at one year the patient had excellent functional and radiological outcome.
