The upper end of the femur; is the bone structure that includes the femoral head, neck, and 5 cm distal to the lesser trochanter. Subtrochanteric femur fractures account for 7% to 20% of femoral fractures. It is caused by high-energy trauma at a young age and by a simple fall at an advanced age. Trochanteric fractures account for 55% of femoral upper-end fractures and are mostly seen in elderly, osteoporotic patients. Locking anatomical plates are designed for proximal femur fractures as an alternative to existing fixation methods for both trochanteric and subtrochanteric region fractures.
