  • Hip Fractures: Relevant Anatomy, Classification, and Biomechanics of Fracture and Fixation. [Journal Article]

  • CONCLUSIONS: The goal of surgical treatment of hip fractures is surgical treatment that allows for early mobilization and weight bearing. A full understanding of the anatomy and fracture characteristics will allow the surgeon to correctly apply the right implant to allow for uneventful healing. Surgeons need to be aware, however, of complications that can arise when using specific implants. Further research is ongoing to further determine the treatments that will allow optimal cost-effective care for the geriatric patient with hip fracture.
