Abstract: Periprosthetic fractures are associated with significant morbidity and mortality. The “hub and spoke model” consists of a central organisation (the hub) and a series of secondary units (the spokes). This study reviews the presentation, management, and outcomes of periprosthetic fractures at a large general district hospital, the Royal Blackburn Hospital.
