Segmental, intact, proximal 1/3 fractures

Intact segmental fractures of the proximal diaphyeal-meatphyseal femoral shaft are classified as 32C2(i) fractures.

Multifragmentary segmental fractures result from severe injury to the femur. These fractures normally result from high energy motor vehicle trauma and four-point bending.
