Abstract

The patient was brought to the operating room, placed supine on the operating table, and a spinal anesthetic was delivered. He/she was then moved onto the fracture table. Fluoroscopy was brought in, and the fracture was reduced. The patient was prepped and draped in a sterile fashion. A 5.0 cm incision was made over the proximal femur, and carried down sharply down to the fascia lata, which was incised in-line with the skin incision. Blunt dissection was utilized to come down onto the proximal femur.
