Comparative functional analysis of intertrochanteric fractures of femur treated with dynamic hip screw with that of proximal femoral nailing

Author(s): Dr. Makesh Ram S, Dr. Anand A and Dr. Kathir Azhagan S
Abstract: The intertrochanteric fractures are the most common hip fractures in the elderly in whole world. These factors affect the hip function and stability. A well aligned and stable fixation is the prime goal of treatment of all operative fixation methods. It helps to restore and preserve good hip function following operative fixation. Anatomical restoration of proximal femur, maintenance of mechanical axis and restoration of hip function can be achieved.
Both stable and unstable fractures are fixed now-a-days by various fixation methods. Complex anatomical features, associated complications, patients general condition all have bearing on early surgical management of these fractures.
The study includes 20 patients all of whom were adults. It includes all four types of intertrochanteric fractures < Boyd and Griffin Classification > fixed either with dynamic hip screw fixation and proximal femoral nailing fixation.
