Figure 5: Anteroposterior hip radiographs of a 76-year-old female (a-c). (a) A blunted configured, longitudinal radiolucent line is seen in the medullary cavity of the proximal one-third of the femur preoperatively. (b) A previous longitudinal radiolucent line is superimposed by the implant. At below the implant tip, two sharply configured, radiolucent lines are newly appeared in the postoperative radiograph. A Vancouver Type B2 intraoperative periprosthetic femoral fracture is diagnosed by computed tomography. (c) Postoperative 1-year radiograph shows complete disappearance of fracture lines
