Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Screw without HA Coating (Hiploc) Device: Hip Fracture reduction Screw without HA Coating (Hiploc)
Hip Fracture reduction Screw without HA Coating (Hiploc)
Other Name: Hiploc
Experimental: Screw with HA Coating (Hiploc) Device: Hip Fracture reduction Screw with HA Coating (Hiploc)
Hip Fracture reduction Screw with HA Coating (Hiploc)
Other Name: Hiploc

Detailed Description:

Randomised study to determine the effect of HA coating on the stability of lag screws used to reduce femoral neck fractures. Stability of the screw will be determined by RSA measurements. The effect of the HA coating on bone remodeling will be determined by DEXA measurements
