Peritrochanteric fractures include either intertrochanteric or subtrochanteric fractures. While inter-trochanteric malunited frequently, subtrochanteric fractures most often end in non-unions. The main reason for non-union is soft tissue interposition. The interposing soft tissues along with the displacement means that these fractures necessitate open reduction. Also to complicate matters, there has been a surge in the number of traditional bone setters who use native splints with massages. Hence, the frequency of non-union subtrochanteric fractures has increased in the recent past. The implant of choice has traditionally been either DCS plates or PFN. In our study, we have used the PF-LCP.
