20190320_PPFsurvey_250pxPeriprosthetic femoral fractures (PPF) are devastating complications often resulting in functional limitations and increased mortality. It has been assumed that the incidence of PPF will increase significantly in the next years.

The purpose of this study is to investigate the current treatment options of orthopaedic surgeons in patients with PPF after primary total hip arthroplasty. Survey questions are addressing the origin, experience and speciality of the surgeon, classification of the fracture according to Vancouver, surgical and conservative treatment of the PPF and postoperative rehabilitation.

The survey is performed among EFORT (European Federation of National Associations of Orthopaedics and Traumatology) and EHS (European Hip Society) members and consists of 20 x-rays of patients with PPF.

This survey online takes approximately 15 minutes to complete and will help to investigate different treatment options. All data and answers will be absolutely anonymous and the survey has been approved by the Institutional Review Board of the Medical University Innsbruck.
