myAO Clinical Roundup on Arthroplasty after fracture
Arthroplasty is commonly used to treat acute fracture of the proximal femur, complex proximal humerus fracture or elbow fracture, but is less usual in complex knee fracture. The main objective of arthroplasty in fractures of the proximal femur is to save the patient's life by limiting the decubitus complications, thanks to immediate resumption of weight-bearing. For the shoulder and elbow, the objective is to save joint function, thanks to immediate postoperative mobilization.

Most complex knee fractures, particularly in the elderly, are treated by internal fixation or even non-operatively. There are, however, good reasons, in the knee as much as for hip or shoulder fractures, for treating certain acute complex fractures using an arthroplasty.
