The number of osteoporotic fractures is still increasing and the overall management of these multimorbid patients is demanding. Surgical management of these fractures is challenging due to often comminuted fractures and poor purchase of implants. New implants and some with add-on possibilities such as standardized cement augmentation have been developed to address these problems. With these technical innovations the overall patient outcome can be improved. This review describes general considerations in operative treatment of osteoporotic fractures and gives recommendations for a selection of frequent fracture types. Copyright © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.
