OBJECTIVE To compare the results after operative treatment of unstable per- and subtrochanteric fractures with the Gamma nail, compression hip screw (CHS), or dynamic hip screw with a laterally mounted trochanteric stabilizing plate (DHS/TSP). DESIGN Prospective. PATIENTS One hundred seventy patients with unstable trochanteric femoral fractures surviving six months after operation. Eighty-five patients were randomized to treatment with the Gamma nail (n = 50, Gamma group) or the compression… CONTINUE READING
