INTRODUCTION The sliding plate has appeared to be a reliable answer for trochanteric fractures. However, impaction allowed by the material may, have an adverse effect (medialisation, shortening, jutting out of the lag screw). The aim of our study was to measure the sliding of the screw in order to assess the impaction in various types of fracture, according to the Ender classification. MATERIAL AND METHODS Hundred trochanteric fractures have been treated between 1991 and 1993. Eighty four… CONTINUE READING
