There is continuity of bone from the lesser trochanter
to the iliac fossa.

In the pertrochanteric multifragmentary fracture (type A2) and in the multifragmentary intertrochanteric fracture (type A3) the trochanter
minor is broken as well.
A larger study in which all measurements are taken in a specifically documented manner, including the greater trochanter
is desirable for our evidence base.
A point of interest is the existence of a prosthesis known as a trochanter
belt or SIJ belt.
The ventrogluteal site is located "by the nurse placing his/her opposing hand (ie right hand for left hip) on the client's greeter trochanter
intake was associated with low BMD at the trochanter
, but not other hip
Results: Investigators found that 80 mg per day of isoflavones from SoyLife had a significant favorable effect on the rates of change in BMC at the total hip and trochanter
While overnutrition is associated with functional limitation, padding over the greater trochanter
, whether by adipose tissue or external hip protectors, is associated with reduced risk of hip fracture.
The evidence indicated that the ulcer on the patient's right trochanter
did not heal and worsened to a point that two separate surgeries were required.
Measure the knee angle achieved in the bottomed-out position by aligning the goniometer with the midlines of the thigh (using the axis of the greater trochanter
and lateral epicondyle) and lower leg (using the axis of the fibular head and lateral malleolus).
10,13,14] The measured body parts were bony prominences such as the trochanter
, sacrum, and ischium.
