Author(s): Dr. Aarjav Naik, Dr. Hemant Mathur and Dr. Gaurang Patel
Abstract: Background: Inter-trochanteric femur fractures are becoming more common since life expectancy is on rising trend in India. Intertrochanteric femur fractures are treated with various implant systems. Proximal femoral nail is a newer implant available for internal fixation of intertrochanteric femur fracture. Purpose of this study is to study outcome of intertrochanteric femur fracture treated with short proximal femoral nail.
Method: A cohort of 30 cases of intertrochanteric fracture treated with proximal femoral nail at SSG hospital, Vadodara were taken up and followed up for 6 months between October 2017 to April 2018.
Result: Average modified harris hip score was 94.4 at final follow up (6 months) in this study.
Conclusion: Results of intertrochanteric femur fractures treated with proximal femoral nail are good and satisfactory.
