Mouhcine Sbiyaa, Adil El Alaoui, Mohammed Admi, Kamal Lahrach, Amine Marzouki, Fawzi Boutayeb

Abstract


Failure of internal fixation of intertrochanteric fracture is associated with delayed union or malunion resulting in persistent pain and diminished function. We report a rare case of implant failure of the gamma nail with intertrochanteric fracture non union treated by DCS plate screw and bone graft.
