Are You Prepared for the Surge in Periprosthetic Fractures?

While Periprosthetic Femur Fractures (PPF) present a less common fracture type, they are growing in frequency, thanks to our longer life expectancy, coupled with the rise in primary and subsequent revision surgeries1,2. Most affected are older adults, additionally grappling with multiple health conditions, osteopenia and post-operative mobility issues2. Fracture rates after hip and knee replacements range between 0.3% - 2.5%, jumping to 1.5% - 38% with revision patients3-7.  

The future? Expect PPF rates to climb.
