Abstract

Periprosthetic femur fractures are complex problems. Its incidence is reported to be increasing with the increasing number of total hip replacements. Treatment recommendations are based upon the fracture location and implant fixation stability. Despite improvements in fixation and surgical techniques, clinical outcome remains suboptimal. This review focuses on the discussion of periprosthetic femur fractures around a total hip replacement.
