This is one of the most unusual case of intertrochanteric hip fracture requiring multiple surgeries to correct failures
At this stage patient was totally bed ridden with severe pain in her hip joint. She had lost all the hope of walking again
She came to our centre
On analyzing all the previous x-rays, we realized that her femur bone had lost all its blood supply due to injury and subsequent surgeries. In view of non viable bone the load came on the femoral implant which subsequently broke down – called fatigue fracture of the implant.
We took up the challenge to revise this complex case.
We decided to remove all the non living bone and supplement with fibula, a bone from the leg of the same side, and do revision hip replacement surgery
Success at last!!!!!!!
