    Subtrochanteric fractures represent a distinct entity. They are different from proximal femoral fractures as well as femoral shaft fractures. Nowadays, these fractures are mainly found in the geriatric population. Fractures in younger patients are indicative of high-energy trauma. Comorbidities are important in the geriatric population whereas accompanying injuries are most important in younger patients. Early surgical stabilization of subtrochanteric fractures is the treatment of choice, which under certain circumstances should also be carried out within the framework of damage control orthopedics. Long cephalomedullary nails represent the standard procedure. In geriatric patients the primary aim is weight bearing stability. The risk of complications with subtrochanteric fractures in the literature is relatively high. Classical compression plates play a role in the management of complications. © 2022.
