The Management of unstable osteoporotic intertrochanteric fractures in elderly is challenging because of difficult anatomical reduction, with a high risk of morbidity and mortality, The aim of study is to do functional evaluation of primary cemented hemiarthroplasties as a treatment option in elderly patient.
Material and Methods: We prospectively analyzed 27 cases of primary hemiorthroplasty performed for unstable intertrochanteric fractures. The functional outcomes were assessed based on Harris hip score.
Result: The functional outcome is better with less time to full weight bearing and less postoperative complications.
Conclusion: Hemiorthroplasty for unstable intertrochanteric fractures in elderly results in early ambulation with acceptable complications and good functional results.
