Proximal femur

Figure 1. This patient had fibrous dysplasia over the proximal femur that was prone to re-fracturing repeatedly. It was treated by curretage, allograft transplant and blade plate stabilisation with very good results.

Figure 2. This highly challenging case of a lady with an osteosarcoma of the proximal femur was treated with a wide extra-articular resection of the hip joint, cryopreservation of the acetabular component with replantation and a hip replacement afterwards. She then underwent tendon transfers for nerve damage. The final result was close to perfect.
