Abstract

The management of distal femoral fractures following a total knee replacement can be complex and requires the equipment, perioperative support and surgical skills of both trauma and revision arthroplasty services. Recent advances in implant technology have changed the management options of these difficult fractures. This article describes the options available and discusses the latest evidence.
