[Comparison of different methods of treatment of per- and subtrochanteric femoral fractures].

[Article in German]

Abstract

In the time between 1970 and 1977 142 patients, 72% older than 75 years, with per- and subtrochanteric fractures of the femur were treated operatively; 38 cases with AO-angle-plates, 53 cases with Küntscher-nails and 51 cases with Ender-nails. Regarding peroperative blood loss, early mobilization and days of hospitalization, it was the group of Ender-nail treated patients which showed the most favorable results.
