Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The consolidation rate [ Time Frame: 6 months after surgery ]
  • The rate of complication due to the device [ Time Frame: 6 months after surgery ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The evolution of the functional scores (Parker, ADL, Katz, Robinson) between before the fracture and after the intervention. [ Time Frame: 3 and 6 months after surgery ]
  • PMA score [ Time Frame: 3 and 6 months after surgery ]
  • operating time [ Time Frame: during the surgery ]
  • The duration of the use of the amplifier of brilliancy during the intervention [ Time Frame: during the surgery ]
  • The radiological position of the device [ Time Frame: 5 days, 3 and 6 months ]

Detailed Description:

Hip fractures are a serious public health problem. The current incidence is projected to increase fourfold worldwide by the year 2050. This affliction is obviously linked to the aging of the population and the absence of a systematic prevention of osteoporosis.

This leads to the creation of a minimally invasive, or ever percutaneous, implantable osteosynthesis material which associates :

  • the well-known reliability of osteosynthesis using screw-plate with barrel,
  • the safety of the fixation with Surfix concept, locking the screws to the plate using lock-screws,
  • a modularity thanks to the choice between 3 sizes of barrel,
  • the creation of a simple material, easing the operative surgery by minimally invasive approach.

The TRAUMAX answers to all those characteristics.


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Patient with a trochanteric fracture whom surgeon advised the use of a screw-plate TRAUMAX

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Man or woman
  • Age > 18
  • with a trochanteric fracture whom surgeon advised the use of a screw-plate TRAUMAX

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patient with an acute infection
