The advantage of the Evans, OA / ASIF and OTA classifications, compared to other classification systems, is to distinguish between pertrochanteric and intertrochanteric fractures. These are characterized by their epidemiological peculiarities, difficult reductions and by their rather high complication rates. The aim of the authors is to review the difficulties and complications encountered in a study of 14 cases in order to distinguish this entity, which is frequently considered to be a pertrochanteric fracture.
