Nonoperative treatment consists of intermittent compression (with a deep vein thrombosis pump) on the leg to avoid thrombosis for a few days.
Early mobilization with crutches or a walker is essential.
Mobilization starts as soon as pain is tolerable with weight bearing and walking aids.
In the case of secondary displacement, treat the fracture like a primarily displaced fracture.
X-ray control should be performed only if pain does not subside or returns.
