The study is devoted to an experimental research of preventive armouring of proximal femur in patients suffering from different diseases causing degenerative-dystrophic changes in bone tissue (oncology, osteoporosis, fibrous and chondral dysplasia, etc.) and pathologic fractures. Medimatics and bench tests of proximal femur durability armoured by implants of the original constructions showed that metal-armouring can raise the durability of the system “bone-implant” to 23–93 % and prevent frac-tures in lowenergy traumas.
