Core Tip We evaluated safety and efficacy of a knee megaprosthesis in the setting of complex fractures of the distal femur in elderly patients with a short-term follow-up. We retrospectively evaluated 11 patients over the age of 85 treated with distal femoral replacement with a fully porous coated metaphyseal sleeve for acute fractures of the distal femur with a minimum follow-up of 2 years. During our study period we observed stability of the implants and improvement in the Visual Analogical Scale, Oxford Knee Score, range of motion, Barthel Index, quality of life and survival.
