Intertrochanteric fractures of the femur recently occurred following trauma in two young adult patients who had undergone Indiana Conservative Hip (ICH) surface arthroplasty. Although femoral neck fractures have occurred following ICH surface arthroplasty, these are the only two patients treated by the authors for intertrochanteric fractures following ICH surface arthroplasty.
