Abstract

Most orthopaedic surgeons utilize parallel cannulated partially threaded screws for fixation of femoral neck fractures, both in the young and elderly patient. The clinical results of this approach, however, are far from ideal. It is helpful for the surgeon to have a good understanding of a comparison between the various fixation options which are available, and to understand future potential fixation alternatives. The clinical results of patients with these fractures may be improved with improved fixation methods in the future.
