A Case Report on Traumatic Avulsion Fracture of Greater Trochanter Ipsilateral and Fixed with Closed Reduction Internal Fixation with K-Wires

Dr. Mazhar Uddin Ali Khan, Dr. Patlolla Karthik Reddy, Dr. Shaik Vazeeruddin

Isolated greater trochanter fractures are uncommon. [1] 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. [2] It is reported that traumatic epiphyseal separations of the greater trochanter in adolescents are much more frequently encountered than true fractures in adults. [3] 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.
