“State of the art of management
of extracapsular fractures of the femur”

Hip fractures continue to be the most common serious injury in the elderly population. The last few years have seen significant improvements in both surgery and rehabilitation, with the aim of providing an improved patient satisfaction and cost-effective treatment pathway. A comprehensive update is therefore necessary in order to create awareness on how treatment has evolved, and possibly find a way to create a guideline consensus on the different treatment options.

Topics reviewed in this document:

  • Epidemiology of Extracapsular Fractures of the Proximal Femur, Goals of PFF management;
  • Towards a multidisciplinary approach;
  • The importance of preoperative assessment;
  • What’s the correct time for surgery?;
  • Anaesthesia management;
  • An overview on PFF fractures fixation procedures;
  • Surgical and nonsurgical complications associated with hip fractures.
