Failed surgical treatment of hip fracture

Hip fracture is a break that occurs near the hip in the upper part of the femur or thigh bone. Hip fractures can be corrected and aligned with non-operative and operative methods. Hip fractures can be surgically treated with external fixation, intramedullary fixation, or by using plates and screws. However, at times there may be surgical failure and further treatment may be required to fix it.
