Fragmentary segmental, proximal 1/3

Fragmentary segmental fractures result from very severe injury to the femur. These fractures normally result from high energy motor vehicle trauma and are often open fractures.

Proximal diaphyseal-metaphyseal (AO/OTA 32C3(i)) 

(AO/OTA 32C3(i))

(AO/OTA 32C3(i))

Multifragmentary segmental fractures of the proximal diaphyseal-metaphyseal femoral shaft are classified as 32C3(i) fractures.

Pure diaphyseal (AO/OTA 32C3(j)) 

(AO/OTA 32C3(j))

(AO/OTA 32C3(j))

(AO/OTA 32C3(j))

(AO/OTA 32C3(j))

Multifragmentary segmental fractures of the pure diaphyseal femoral shaft are classified as 32C3(j) fractures.

Distal diaphyseal-metaphyseal (AO/OTA 32C3(k)) 

(AO/OTA 32C3(k))

(AO/OTA 32C3(k))

Multifragmentary segmental fractures of the distal diaphyeal-meatphyseal femoral shaft are classified as 32C3(k) fractures.
