The fracture sites of atypical femoral fractures are associated with the weight-bearing lower limb alignment

Bone. 2014 Jun 14;66C:105-110. doi: 10.1016/j.bone.2014.06.008. [Epub ahead of print].

The femorotibial angle (FTA) of the patients with atypical diaphyseal femoral fracture were significantly larger compared to that of those with not only atypical subtrochanteric fractures (AFFs) but also typical femoral fractures (TFFs). In conclusion, the fracture sites of AFFs are associated with the standing lower limb alignment, while those of TFFs are not.
