Figure 5: (a) Type III open subtrochantric femur fracture with bone loss with distal bone fragment protruding outside. Case could not receive early surgical intervention due to associated lung contusion. (b) Highly unstable subtrochantric femur fracture with medial bone loss). (c) Fracture stabilized with primary Ilizarov with acute docking and monofocal osteosynthesis. (d) Union seen after 5 months following two cycles of accordion maneuver. (e) Wound healed by secondary intention. (f) Final clinical picture
