The proximal femur is the top part of the thigh, closest to the hip joint. Injury can cause discomfort and mobility problems, making accurate treatment vital.
This book is a guide to the diagnosis and management of proximal femoral fractures for orthopaedic trainees. Divided into five sections, each part discusses fractures in a different part of the femur, providing an overview of the fracture, followed by surgical treatment options.
Difficult and rare fractures are covered, and the final section examines fractures in children, periprosthetic fractures, and pathological fractures. More than 200 images enhance learning.
- Guide to the diagnosis and surgical management of proximal femoral fractures
