This book, Proximal Femoral Fractures, deals with femoral fractures. Proximal femoral fractures remain a major cause of morbidity and mortality amongst the elderly population, world over. Proximal femoral fractures are one of the most common problems occurring in the elderly patients, especially amongst women worldwide. The incidence of hip fractures that occur each year in the world has been constantly increasing probably due to demographic modifications and increases in the average life span of the population. The risk of hip fracture rises exponentially with the presence of concurrent osteoporosis though there are other predictors of femoral fractures exclusive of bone mineral density. The book encompasses practical tips for management of proximal femoral fractures in day-to-day practice. It clearly details the indications for hemireplacement in intertrochanteric fractures of elderly along with extensive description of novel approach and execution of the surgery. In fact, a detailed surgical procedure for all proximal femoral fractures remains the strong point of the book.
