The article focuses on a research about the development of treatment for fractures in osteoporotic patients. It discusses the effect of osteoporotic bone on the fracture pattern. It states that retrograde or antegrade nail fixation can cure simple distal fracture. It mentions the use of a locked supracondylar plate and underscores the value of plain radiographs for tibial plateau fractures. It also presents the instruments used in the surgical treatment of osteoporotic bicondylar fractures.
