Closed Cephalomedullary Nailing of Subtrochanteric Hip Fracture

Michael Weaver, MD
Brigham and Women's Hospital

In this case, Dr. Michael Weaver performs an intramedullary fixation of a reverse oblique trochanteric femoral fracture in a lateral position. Neutralizing the deforming forces on the proximal femur, this positioning allows the soft tissue to fall away and makes a direct reduction a bit easier, but taking x-rays in the lateral position is more challenging.
