Fixation of displaced femoral neck fractures. A comparison between sliding screw plate and four cancellous bone screws.


In a prospective, randomized trial, 104 consecutive patients with displaced femoral neck fractures were allocated either to fixation with a sliding screw plate or 4 ASIF cancellous bone screws. The patients were reexamined at fixed intervals to determine the time of union. The 2-year-cumulated rate of union was 64 per cent in the plate group and 84 per cent in the screw group.
