Combining a hip arthroplasty stem with trochanteric reattachment bolt and a polyaxial locking plate in the treatment of a periprosthetic fracture below a well-integrated implant.

ABSTRACT: Distally anchored uncemented modular tapered porous stems are often the preferred treatment in total hip arthroplasty revisions and failed subtrochanteric fractures. These conditions mainly affect elderly osteoporotic patients, with an increased risk of later fractures below the well-fixated implant. Treatment in secondary fractures with long looking plates is the recommended treatment, where stability is a key to fracture healing. We report a complicated case in which this was achieved by an innovative technique combing the trochanteric attachment bolt of the stem system and a locking plate with polyaxial screws.
