Abstract

BACKGROUND:

The anti-rotation intramedullary nail and dynamic hip screw has been widely used in the fixation treatment of intertrochanteric fracture.

OBJECTIVE:

To evaluate and compare the effect of anti-rotation intramedullary nail and dynamic hip screw internal fixation for the treatment of femoral intertrochanteric fractures.

METHODS:

The clinical patients with femoral intertrochanteric fractures were followed-up, and the clinical effect of effect of anti-rotation intramedullary nail and dynamic hip screw internal fixation for the treatment of femoral intertrochanteric fractures was comprehensively analyzed through evaluating the fracture healing, incidence of complications and joint function score.

RESULTS AND CONCLUSION:

Both anti-rotation intramedullary nail and dynamic hip screw internal fixation could obtain the good effect on the treatment of femoral intertrochanteric fractures, but anti-rotation intramedullary nail internal fixation for the treatment of femoral intertrochanteric fractures had the advantages of less bleeding, lower incidence of complications, shorter fracture healing time and higher excellent and good rate of hip function, which is one of the preferred methods for the treatment of femoral intertrochanteric fractures.
