Abstract: This study presents morphological analysis of 20 scans of femur samples from European (Serbian) adults from trochanteric region based on the customized computer aided reverse modeling procedure. Results indicated that trochanteric region is a separate morphological unit of proximal femur, named trochanteric wedge or canoe. This new perceiving of trochanteric region seems to provide a better understanding of trochanteric wedge volume and, therefore, better trochanter fractures treatment, operation planning, implant and endoprothesis design and selection. Also, it brings a new light to anatomy of proximal femur, its biomechanics and ossification.
