Reducing subtrochanteric femur fractures: tips and tricks, do's and don'ts.

Treatment of subtrochanteric fracture remains a challenge, but evolution of strategy has allowed for reliable results with low complications. Although several fixation options exist, reamed, antegrade intramedullary nailing (IMN) has evolved as the standard of care. Cognizant effort to achieve anatomic reduction before IMN passage allows for desired outcomes.

The purpose of this article is to review the tips, tricks, and pitfalls to avoid in the treatment of subtrochanteric femur fractures with IMN.
