RESULTS OF CEMENTED BIPOLAR HEMIARTHROPLASTY FOR UNSTABLE INTERTROCHANTERIC FRACTURES IN ELDERLY PATIENTS

Dr Himanshu D. Shah, Dr Viswanath H. Chavali

Abstract


Intertrochanteric fractures are common in elderly osteoporotic population. Unstable intertrochanteric fractures in elderly population are notorious
for reduction and fixation due to comminution posteromedial wall fracture. Conventional implants used for such unstable intertrochanteric
fractures have higher failure rates due to associated osteopororsis with delayed weight bearing protocol in postoperative period with increase rate
of morbidity and mortality. Fixation of fracture with appropriate implant still is considered gold standard for stable two part
intertrochanteric fractures.
However for unstable fractures, bipolar cemented hemiarthroplasty is one of the surgical treatement which allows early pain free weight bearing
and decrease in morbidity and mortality.


Keywords
