Intertrochanteric fracture of left femoral neck is noted. There is also slight superiolateral displacement of femoral shaft.
Intertrochanteric fractures are subdivided into four types as per number of fragments into:
- two-part linear intertrochanteric fracture
- three-part with comminution of lesser trochanter or greater trochanter
- four-part with comminution of both trochanters
- multi-part with comminution of both trochanters and intertrochanteric region
