A Study Determine the Functional Score ? Harris Hip Score in Operated Cases of Fracture Neck Femur using Conventional Cannulated Hip Screws (CCS) Vs Bone Impregnated Hip Screws (BHS)
Abstract: In treating fracture neck of femur Cannulated cancellous screws are the gold standard ideally using three screws. Some surgeons replace one of the screws with fibular strut graft to stimulate the bone growth. There is only one report of use of cancellous graft in fracture neck of Femur (Samuelson), and the failure rate is reported as 22 %. Present understanding of the biomechanical principles employee three screws, each assigned a particular area of the neck of femur and this assumes an inverted triangular configuration. This study uses an innovative implant, Bone impregnated hip screw (BIHS), which combines the biomechanical properties of the standard cancellous hip screws and as well as providing provision for placing cancellous bone graft within the body of the screw. The disadvantage of the study is the small sample size and the wide variations in the ages of patients. This study puts in a sincere effort to study the functional score Harris Hip Score in operated cases of fracture neck femur using conventional cannulated hip screws (ccs) vs bone impregnated hip screws (bhs) so as to find which ones usage has a better outcome.
