A total of 26 patients with average age of 45 years was treated with fully threaded cannulated cancellous screws. Out of the 26, 20 (77%) were males and 6 (23%) were females. The average timing of surgery 32.6 hrs following the incident ( range 32.6 +/- 11.34hrs) with a range of 18 to 76 hrs . There was no significant limb length discrepancy noted in immediate postop and follow up period. Incidence of infection non-union avascular necrosis was comparable with partially threaded group in previous studies. Harris Hip Scores was found to be fair to excellent except in 5 cases (3 had non-union neck of femur and other 2 with avascular necrosis of femoral head). Average femoral neck shortening was 3.6+/_ 3.06 mm and 1.98+/- 1.68 mm respectively which was significantly less as compared to partially threaded groups.
