Unstable A2 and A3 fractures, especially multifragmentary ones with a separated greater trochanter. Excessive secondary fracture impact and medialization of the femoral shaft can be avoided by combining the DHS with the trochanter major stabilization plate. Fixation of the greater trochanter with locking head screws reduces varus angulation and limb shortening. Stabilizing the greater trochanter can reduce internal bleeding and restores the function of the gluteus medius.
This results in less postoperative pain and a faster mobilization of the patient.
