Femoral Inter-Trochanteric fracture is one of the most frequently occurring fractures in the elderly, usually following trivial trauma. In the younger age group of people, it occurs almost always due to high velocity trauma.
Objectives: This study aimed to study the functional outcome of operative management of inter-trochanteric fracture treated by PFN-A2. The results have been studied in depth with a view to outline guideline for better management of this fracture.
Material & Methods: A prospective study of 30 cases of intertrochanteric femur fracture treated by PFN-A2, minimum 6 months of follow up. All cases are evaluated according to Modified Harris Hip Score on residual effects on clinical ground at final examination. Pain & functional capacity are the two basic considerations for this scoring system. Points are given for pain, function, range of motion & absence of deformity.
Result: Functional result according to Modified Harris Hip score was found to be excellent in 17(57.33%) patients, good in 8(25.33%) patients, fair in 3(10.3%) patients & poor in 2(7%) patients. poor outcome occurs due to development of complications and old age & medical illness.
Conclusion: Modified Harris Hip Score is good score to evaluate functional outcome of the intertrochanteric fracture treated with PFN-A2. Intertrochanteric fracture treated with PFN-A2 gives Excellent to Good (82.66%) functional results.
