Pilot for Dual Implant versus Single Implant Distal End of Femur (pDISIDE Femur)

Brief description of study

The incidence of distal femur fractures in elderly patients continues to increase. The most recent estimates are about 8.7 out of 100,000 people per year. These patients are often unable to move freely as they cannot bear weight and this places significant stress on the hardware in the femur. As a result, elderly patients with distal femur fractures can have high rates of morbidity and mortality.

The purpose of the study is to see if there are any differences in the health outcomes of older patients when they are treated with dual distal femur implants versus a single distal femur implant. These outcomes include mobility, pain, physical function, and complications.
