This 40-year patient with a right previous proximal femoral fixation and new right comminuted femur fracture appears to be nailed with a −2.42 cm (shortening) of this right femur compared to the left femur. However, due to a Tibia LLD of +1.59 cm (inherently longer) on the right side, he has a balancing of the overall LLD of <0.5 cm, which is and was tolerable for him.
