Clinical profile of patients with unstable proximal femoral fractures
Author(s): Dr. Vinay N and Dr. Arnab Sain
Abstract: Many studies suggest an increased mortality among patients who develop osteoporotic fractures, particularly fractures of the hip. Mortality in the acute phase reaches 5% and after a year from the fracture 30%. It has been calculated that the risk of death due to hip fracture is comparable to that of breast cancer. After the first year from the fracture event, the risk of mortality is comparable to that of the general population standardized by age and sex. 30 patients treated by proximal femoral locking compression plate and 30 patients treated by proximal femoral nailing was selected for study. Out of 60 patients, 34 (43.33%) were Inter-trochanteric fractures and 26(56.67%) were Sub-trochanteric fractures
