    Goodevening, does the person have a fracture in the femur too or the fracture is just at the hip bone? The extent of the fracture will determine the best way to manage. If the bone fragments are not stable then a POP cast cannot work for such fracture. So it wouldn't be an option. I'm sure the orthopaedic surgeon who is managing and has seen the Xray would be in the best position to determine the best way to manage the fracture. Take care
