A Case Report on Traumatic Avulsion Fracture of Greater Trochanter Ipsilateral and Fixed with Closed Reduction Internal Fixation with K-Wires
Abstract: Isolated greater trochanter fractures are uncommon.  Isolated fractures of the greater trochanter are classified either as true fractures, which occur solely in adults, or as epiphyseal separations, which are found in the adolescent population.  It is reported that traumatic epiphyseal separations of the greater trochanter in adolescents are much more frequently encountered than true fractures in adults.  It is generally accepted that these fractures are caused either by direct trauma over the trochanter, such as a blow, kick or fall, or by muscular violence, in which the bony fragment is avulsed from the trochanter. We present A case of 30 years male patient with traumatic avulsion fracture of greater trochanter associated with pelvic injury treated with closed reduction internal Fixation with k wires under C-Arm fluoroscopy guidance.
