I guess it would depend on where the fracture was. According to the RVG 2009:
01210 anesthesia for open procedures involving hip joint; not otherwise specified 6+TM.
01230 Anesthesia for open procedures involving upper two-thirds of femur; not otherwise specified. 6+TM.

So, where is the fracture exactly? That's where I would start.

Then I would go with the unspecified, unless you can query and get a location. Then you can go with the more specific. Good luck!!
