Trochanteric Bursa

  • Paul Harwood
  • Peter V. Giannoudis


Trochanteric bursitis that has failed to respond to more conservative measures. Patients will complain of lateral hip pain and are usually exquisitely tender over the lateral border of the greater trochanter. Occasionally aspiration is indicated for aspiration of a haematoma within the bursa which may form following a fall onto the hip.
