Clinical study of outcome of unstable intertrochanteric fracture treated by proximal femoral nail: A prospective study

Author(s): Dr A Dhar, Dr Abhinit K Sinha, Dr AK Daolagupu and Dr Ashwani Mudgil
Abstract: 

2cm, one case of delayed union and one case of reverse z effect. We did not encountered any case of implant failure or avascular necrosis of femoral head. All the patient shows radiological union in our study with mean time of union was 18.02 weeks (12-32 weeks). According to Harris hip score, we had excellent results in 29.27%, good result in 43.90%, fair result in 24.39% and poor result in 2.44% of cases./p p style="" margin-bottom:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt;text-align:justify;line-height:normal"="">Conclusions: PFN is a very good choice of implant for unstable intertrochanteric fracture in respect of minimal blood loss, less soft tissue injury, early weight bearing, few complications and with good functional outcome.
