Abstract

Introduction: Intracapsular femoral neck fractures account for 50% of all hip fractures occurring mainly i
n elderly females. Surgical treatment of neck of femur fracture is based on patient ’ s age, comorbidities,
walking abilities and life expectancy. In displaced fractures in a young patient mainly internal fixation is
used while for displaced fractures in elderly patient hemiarthroplasty is preferred. Here we evaluate the
results of unipolar v/s fixed bipolar prosthesis in these patients treated with hemiarthroplasty.

Keywords: Hemiarthroplasty, Neck femur fractures, Unipolar prosthesis, Bipolar prosthesis.
