These fractures occur when osteolysis has caused the loss of bone stock and loosening of the femoral component.
They are classified by UCPF as V.3-B3.
V.3-B3 fractures often occur with minimal or no trauma.
Plain X-rays remain the first line of investigation.
CT Scan is required to assess possible fracture extension to the implant interface.
