A Study of Weight Bearing (Partial and Complete) and Complications in Operated Cases of Fracture Neck Femur using Conventional Cannulated Hip Screws (CCS) Vs Bone Impregnated Hip Screws (BHS)
Abstract: Cancellous Screw being gold standard treatment for fracture neck of femur, an alternative screw Bone Impregnated Hip Screw was also used. We found these procedures to be relatively easy, with minimal soft tissue dissection, minimal operating time and hence decreased chance of infection and bleeding, no need for blood transfusion. The use of Cannulated system of screws under C- arm control gave a good assessment of reduction and also ideal positioning of the implants hence preventing the complications that could have occured otherwise like screw fixation into the joint space or out of the neck etc. This study puts in a sincere effort to study the weight bearing qualities of post-operative patients using both the above mentioned screws and also to find out any differences that could possibly make to the early complete recovery of the patients.
