FRACS Orthopaedic Exams

iSAWEs

An 89 year old lady presents to you 6 months after fracturing her hip in a fall. She progressed well after her surgery, but in the last month has noticed pain in the right side with weightbearing.

You assess her with a radiograph of the right hip:

1. What has happened here?
2. Why has this happened?
3. How will you manage her now?
