Introduction Transtrochanteric anterior rotational osteotomy of the femoral head (TRO) was developed as a joint preserving surgery for osteonecrosis of the femoral head. To the best of our knowledge, peri-implant fractures after femoral osteotomy have rarely been reported. Presentation of case We report a 58-year-old female who suffered a peri-implant femoral shaft fracture following a fall from a stepladder eight years after TRO. Fracture union was achieved six months after a preferred proximal femoral locking plate. Discussion The entry point of the ante-grade femoral nail would have been very close to the new position of the nutrient artery of the femoral head occasioned by the TRO and to avoid injury, we chose proximal femoral locking plate. Conclusion It is important to consider the new position of the nutrient artery of the femoral head in the surgical planning of peri-implant fracture after TRO.
