Hemiarthroplasty or Internal Fixation for Displaced Femoral Neck Fractures
|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00464230|
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : April 23, 2007

|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Femoral Neck Fractures||Procedure: Bipolar hemiarthroplasty (Charnley/Hastings) Procedure: Internal fixation with two parallel screws (Olmed)||Phase 4|
We plan to include patients with displaced intracapsular femoral neck fractures. The patients will be randomized by means of closed numbered envelopes to operation groups:
- Two parallel screws (Olmed).
- Hemiarthroplasty with Charnley/ Hastings prosthesis. A priori one would expect that there would be less morbidity and mortality with the less extensive and quicker operation with parallel screw and that a faster and better rehabilitation would be achieved with hemiarthroplasty.
