Comparative evaluation of clinico-radiological and functional outcome of proximal femoral locking compression plate and proximal femoral nail in unstable proximal femoral fractures

Author(s): Dr. Vinay N and Dr. Arnab Sain
Abstract: Intertrochanteric fractures are of the commonest fractures of the hip. They occur mainly in elderly people with osteoporotic bone usually due to low energy trauma like simple fall. Their incidence is increasing day by day because of population aging. 30 patients treated by proximal femoral locking compression plate and 30 patients treated by proximal femoral nailing was selected for study. Average operating time in PFN was 67(range 73.42-61.58 mins) and in PF-LCP is 81.5(range 90.71-72.29 mins). Out of 60 cases, radiological union was seen in 56(93.33%) cases and no radiological union was seen in 4 (6.67%) cases.
