The mode of fixation of proximal femur fracture has evolved immensely. Inspite of use of number of implants the failure of fixation is reported to be between 5 to 14%. The fixation failure is mainly due to loss of fixation in the proximal femur. Quality of bone is the major factor for loss of fixation. Here in our study we present a case report where trochanteric femoral nail advanced system has been used for fixation of proximal femur which had compromised bone quality and had undergone multiple surgeries. We here have highlighted the methodology for use of this implant and along with peroperative experiences.
