TY JOUR. T1 Subcapital vs intertrochanteric fracture of the neck of the femur. T2 are there two distinct subpopulations? AU Dias, J. J.o There may be a discontinuity in the normal smooth curve of the superior aspect of the femoral neck as it joins the head. o Pitfall: a rim of osteophytes may form around the femoral head and project over the neck mimicking the sclerotic line of a subcapital fracture Look for cortical discontinuity subcapital vs femoral neck
