An estimated 1.6 million patients sustain a hip fracture every year, about half of these are intracapsular femoral neck fractures. A femoral neck fracture is a life changing event for any patient, and the risk of disability, increased dependence and death is substantial. The main treatment options for displaced femoral neck fractures are internal fixation and arthroplasty. It is established that there are more complications and reoperations after internal fixation, but there is no consensus about which procedure that gives best functional results.
We plan to include patients with displaced intracapsular femoral neck fractures. The patients will be randomized by means of closed numbered envelopes to operation groups:
1. Two parallel screws (Olmed).
2. Hemiarthroplasty with Charnley/ Hastings prosthesis. A priori one would expect that there would be less morbidity and mortality with the less extensive and quicker operation with parallel screw and that a faster and better rehabilitation would be achieved with hemiarthroplasty.

Insertion of a hemiarthroplasty is a well established treatment for a dislocated medial hip fracture in elderly patients. The purpose of this study is to compare unipolar and bipolar hemia...
Distal humeral fractures can be difficult to treat, in particular when the joint surface is affected (intra-articular fractures). If rigid internal fixation with plates and screws can be o...
In England each year over 70,000 people fracture their hip. Most of these patients are elderly females with the fracture occurring after a simple trip or stumble. Approximately half of the...
Hemiarthroplasty (half of a hip replacement) is the most common treatment for displaced fractures of the femoral neck in the elderly and is associated with a better functional outcome and ...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of leg length discrepancy in geriatric patients with early failure of bipolar hemiarthroplasty and to identify related failure patterns and risk fac...
Geriatric hip fractures are mostly managed by internal fixation (IF) or hemiarthroplasty (HA). Survivorship of dementia patients following these surgeries has not been extensively compared in literatu...
Hemiarthroplasty is a common procedure for treatment of displaced femoral neck fractures in low-demand patients. As hip fracture incidence continues to increase, the need for revision hemiarthroplasty...
Hemiarthroplasty of the shoulder is a well established treatment for proximal humerus fractures not amenable to open reduction internal fixation. However, orthopedic surgeons have recently increased u...
Young patients with femoral neck fractures are optimally treated with reduction and stable fixation, while patients over the age of sixty-five are often treated with arthroplasty. This study analyzes ...
The use of internal devices (metal plates, nails, rods, etc.) to hold the position of a fracture in proper alignment.
A partial joint replacement in which only one surface of the joint is replaced with a PROSTHESIS.
The internal resistance of a material to moving some parts of it parallel to a fixed plane, in contrast to stretching (TENSILE STRENGTH) or compression (COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH). Ionic crystals are brittle because, when subjected to shear, ions of the same charge are brought next to each other, which causes repulsion.
Nerve cells of the RETINA in the pathway of transmitting light signals to the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. They include the outer layer of PHOTORECEPTOR CELLS, the intermediate layer of RETINAL BIPOLAR CELLS and AMACRINE CELLS, and the internal layer of RETINAL GANGLION CELLS.
Increase in the longest dimension of a bone to correct anatomical deficiencies, congenital, traumatic, or as a result of disease. The lengthening is not restricted to long bones. The usual surgical methods are internal fixation and distraction.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
