Modified Extended Trochanteric Osteotomy for the Treatment of Vancouver B2/B3 Periprosthetic Fractures of the Femur
The modified ETO with a lateral approach to the hip for the treatment of PFF is compatible with fracture healing, a low dislocation rate, and good clinical results. However, component stability and apparent osseointegration are coincident with fracture healing only in the distal aspect of the inserted stem. Absence of proximal osseointegration might lead to poor osseous support resulting in inadequate fatigue strength at the junction of the dual modular revision stem.
