Abstract

Extended trochanteric osteotomy represents a reliable surgical technique for component extraction of the femur and the management of bone defects, with low failure rates and satisfactory functional outcomes. It is a highly effective procedure that was initially established for the management of large bone defects of the femur (Paprosky III-A and III-B) and for long stem removal. Nowadays, utilization of this technique is closely related to the implantation of long stems.Nevertheless, research studies with longer follow up are required to establish its effectiveness.
