This studied a series of 15 consecutive subtrochanteric fractures treated in a long quadrilateral cast-brace with a pelvic band. Treatment with preliminary traction followed by an ambulatory cast-brace with a pelvic band resulted in a shorter period of treatment, an excellent range of motion of the hip and knee, and no non-unions in the 15 comminuted or open fractures.
