Left Hip Fracture with Surgical Fixation

This medical exhibit features one anterior skeletal view of the left hip region illustrating the post-accident condition. This image reveals the comminuted intertrochanteric fractures of the proximal femur. An inset view of one of the pre-operative x-rays is included. Next, the key steps of the surgical procedure are illustrated including the proximal femur exposed through an open incision. The first image shows the intramedullary rod being driven down into the shaft of the femur. The second shows the trochanteric nail being inserted through the intramedullary rod and up into the femoral neck. Finally, another skeletal view of the hip region illustrates the post-operative condition with the fixation hardware in place. One of the post-operative x-rays is included.
