Core Tip Bisphosphates are a class of drugs used as the mainstay of treatment for osteoporosis. A number of the clinical and radiological features of atypical femoral fractures and osteoporotic femoral fractures are different, indicating that there is a distinct difference in the respective underlying pathophysiology. At the point of presentation of an atypical femoral fracture, bisphosphonate should be discontinued. Currently there is no established treatment guidelines for either complete or incomplete fractures. The evidence suggests that cephalomedullary nailing of the fracture has lower revision rates.
