Background: Atypical Subtrochanteric Fracture (ASF) is frequently associated with intractable non-union and fixation failure. Hip arthroplasty might be an option to treat intractable non-union of ASF. However, there is no study on hip arthroplasty in ASF patients with refractory non-union. Case Presentation: We present 3 patients who had atypical subtrochanteric fracture with intractable non-union or concomitant arthritic hip and were treated successfully with hip arthroplasty. Conclusion: Hip arthroplasty is a successful treatment option for ASF patients, who have intractable non-union or combined osteoarthritis of the hip.
