Stable Frx

- See: Radiographic Findings
- stable intertroch frx is one that when reduced has cortical contact w/o gap medially and posteriorly;
     - this contact will prevent frx displacement into varus or retro-version when forces are applied to proximal femur;
- medial cortices are not comminuted & there is no displaced frx of lesser trochanter
