BACKGROUND Recent randomized, controlled trials performed at two years postoperatively have shown that a primary total hip replacement is superior to internal fixation for the treatment of a displaced femoral neck fracture in a relatively healthy, mentally competent, elderly patient. The primary aim of the present study was to evaluate the outcomes at four years. METHODS One hundred and two patients (mean age, eighty years) who had an acute displaced femoral neck fracture were randomly… CONTINUE READING
