Abstract:
BACKGROUND: 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 and radiological outcomes of operative management of intertrochanteric fracture treated by PFN-A2. MATERIAL & METHODS: A prospective study of 20 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 11(55%) patients, good in 5(25%) patients, fair in 3(15%) patients & poor in 1(5%) patients. poor outcome occurs due to development of complications. CONCLUSION : PFN A2 has the advantage of minimal incision, shorter operative time, rapid rehabilitation, lower medical complications among other options.
