A comparitive & prospective analysis of unstable trochanteric fractures fixed with PFN and PFN AII
Author(s): Dr. Ajeet Hundekar, Dr. Santosh Mared and Dr. Prakash Wali
Abstract: 
Introduction: Intertrochanteric (peritrochanteric) fractures include the fractures in the region extending from the extrascapular basilar neck region to the region along the lesser trochanter of femur. Usually occurs in the elderly age group as a result of low-Energy trauma such as accidental fall due to osteoporosis and poor bone quality but high velocity trauma in young individuals can also result in similar fracture. Epidemiological reports by (Gill esult JB, 2007) reported a life-time risk of hip fractures at 50 years of age as 5.6% for men and 20% for women. And, interestingly peritrochanteric fractures constitute around 34% of all hip fractures.
Aim of the study: The aim of the study is to compare and analyze the functional outcome of patients with Unstable Trochanteric fractures managed with Proximal Femoral Nailing Anti-rotation II (PFN AII) against Proximal Femoral Nailing (PFN)
Objective of the study: Comparative analysis of functional outcome in the management of unstable trochanteric fractures by Proximal Femoral Nailing Anti-rotation II (PFN AII) against Proximal Femoral Nailing (PFN).
