Figure 2

(a) A trial broach with the optimum size was inserted, but reduction was not enough (arrowhead). (b) Varus of the proximal bone fragment was prevented using the Blocking Pin Technique (arrow), and the stem was placed in the optimal position (arrowhead). (c) The osteosynthesis-combined one-staged total hip arthroplasty. (d) AP and lateral views on radiograph obtained after second surgery six months show complete union of the fracture.
