Comparative study between DHS and PFN in intertrochanteric fractures of femur

Author(s): Dr. Amandeep Singh Bakshi, Dr. Pardeep Kumar, Dr. BS Brar
Abstract: A total 40 patients with fresh intertrochanteric fracture femur (within 15 days) were included in this study. 20 underwent DHS and 20 underwent PFN procedure. After evaluation at 10, 14, 18 weeks for radiological union and at 6 months for Harris Hip score, we found PFN and DHS to be equal in peri-operative and post-operative complications, long term union. But PFN is better in terms of less blood loss, early mobilization, duration of surgery.
