Modular endoprosthetic replacement for failed internal fixation of the proximal femur following trauma.

Abstract:

PURPOSE: Although originally designed for reconstruction after primary malignant bone tumour resection, modular endoprosthetic replacement (EPR) can be used in salvage surgery for complex periprosthetic fracture and failed internal fixation. The purpose of this study was to assess the functional outcome following EPR for failed internal fixation of the proximal femur. METHODS: We assessed clinical and functional outcomes of using a modular tumour endoprosthesis to reconstruct the proximal fe...
