AbstractBackground: There is still controversy about the choice of treatment of displaced fractures of the neck of femur which leads the best clinical and functional outcomes. Treatment options include internal fixation, unipolar or bipolar hemiarthroplasty, or total hip replacement.
Aim: The aim of this study is to find out which treatment option can lead to the best clinical and functional outcomes.
Material and Methods: Fifty one consecutive patients study conducted from (Jan 2020 to Oct 2020) at Department of Orthopaedics, Moti Lal Nehru Medical College, Prayagraj. ,were selected. Preoperative and operative data was retrieved from inpatient hospital files.
Results: Postoperatively, Thirty three patients (89.2%) either returned to the functional level that they had had before the fracture or used only a cane, which they had not needed before.
Conclusion: In our study, the bipolar hemiarthroplasty has served us well. Two-year results of total hip replacement appeared to be better than those of bipolar hemiarthroplasty, but this finding was based on relatively small numbers of patients.
