  1. Total data of assessment were recorded as mean ± standard deviation
  2. A, B1, and C. Type A fractures occurred in the trochanteric area (type AG involving the greater and type AL involving the lesser trochanter); type B fractures took place in the tip region of femoral component and was subclassified as B1 (well-fixed stem), Type C fractures were located distally and at the tip of the stem
