Abstract

Advantages and disadvantages of various fixation procedures for use in fractures of the femoral neck--blade-plate with temporary fixation by means of Kirschner wire insertion or dynamic hip screws--and hemi- or total allo-arthroplasty are described. The large number of fixation procedures for pertrochanteric fractures reflects the difficulty in achieving mobility and loading stability. On account of the possible intra- and postoperative complications, the highly propagated gamma nailing has proved problematic. Overall, the individual situation of the patient must be taken into account when choosing the appropriate fixation procedure.
