Early Mobilisation and Long-Term Results of Treatment of Trochanteric Fractures with the Dynamic Hip Screw and the Gamma Nail

Summary

We studied early mobilisation and long-term results in patients treated with the dynamic hip screw (DHS) or gamma nail after trochanteric fractures. Both implants showed good results in stable fractures; patients with unstable fractures were able to walk with full load earlier when treated with the gamma nail. We recommend the DHS for stable and the gamma nail for unstable trochanteric fractures.
