AIM OF THE STUDY The dynamic hip screw (DHS) often shows a high incidence of therapeutic failure and an impared outcome in the treatment of the unstable pertrochanteric femur fracture (31A2). Therefore often an intramedullary device is recommended. In a retrospective clinical study we examined whether the percutaneous compression plate (PCCP, Gotfried) provides advantages following unstable fractures in comparison to DHS and PFN. METHODS From January 2002 to April 2007 135 patients with… CONTINUE READING
