To study correlation between the tip apex distance and the functional outcome of fracture intertrochanteric femur treated with trochanteric femoral nail

Introduction: Tip Apex Distance (TAD) is well established method of prediction of outcome in intertrochanteric fractures managed by Dynamic Hip Screw. This retrospective study was done to assess the significance of Tip Apex Distance in the management of the intertrochanteric fractures by proximal femoral nail.Methodology: Selection of Cases-An informed written consent will be taken from all the patient/relatives/guardian after the approval of Institutional Ethics Committee.Source of Data: Patients admitted to Sri Aurobindo Medical College and PG Institute, Indore for fracture proximal humerus in adult patients.Conclusion: This study indicates that the Tip Apex Distance can be used as a useful predictor of the outcome of the proximal femoral nail in intertrochanteric fractures.
