Figure 2: Cross-table lateral hip radiographs of a 70-year-old male (a and b). (a) No radiolucent line is seen in the femoral diaphysis preoperatively. (b) At proximal to the implant tip, oblique radiolucent line (white arrow) is seen postoperatively. This patient was misdiagnosed as intraoperative periprosthetic femoral fracture and was treated by conservative treatment with protective weight-bearing and serial radiological examination
