AbstractBackground: clinical study fifty cases of intracapsular fracture neck of femur in elderly patients above the age of 50 years irrespective of sex treated by hemiarthroplasty using unipolar (Austin moore’s / Thompson’s ) or bipolar endoprosthesis, in the Department of Orthopedics, were followed up and functional results were analysed with the objectives, to study the age and sex incidence of fracture neck of femur, quality of life after hemiarthroplasty, morbidity and mortality associated with the procedure.
Methods: Fifty cases of fracture neck of femur in elderly patients above the age of 50 years treated by hemiarthroplasty using either unipolar or bipolar prosthesis in the Department of Orthopaedics at All india institute of medical sciences, Patna. Study duration period of two years, were selelected on the basis of purposive sampling or judgement sampling method. Conclusion: The success of hemiarthroplasty no doubt depends on preoperative planning and proper attention to surgical details to achieve the optimum biomechanical stability. The poor results (11.1%) were due to moderate to marked pain in the hip or thigh after hemiarthroplasty. We conclude that hemiarthroplasty for fracture neck of femur is a good option in elderly patients.
