Subtrochanteric femur and proximal femur shaft fractures
Subtrochanteric femur fractures and proximal femur shaft fractures are severe injuries. They are considered as problematical fractures at the lower extremity. Subtrochanteric femoral fractures and proximal femoral shaft fractures occur more rarely in comparison with pertrochanteric femoral fractures. Nevertheless they lead quicker to life-threatening situations because they can be accompanied by rapid blood loss within a short time and other complications.
