OBJECTIVES This study aimed at comparing the results obtained with a sliding screw plate and an experimental device including a small-diameter nail that can be placed with a mini-invasive approach and provides a stable fixation. DESIGN Randomized prospective study. SETTING University hospital. PATIENTS The study included two groups with thirty fractures of the trochanteric area. INTERVENTIONS In both groups, the surgical procedure was carried out on patients placed on a traction table… CONTINUE READING
