dynamic hip screw

Orthopedics Orthopedic hardware designed to resist angular deformation, while permitting early fracture impaction, with shortening along the lag screw's axis; the DHS is designed to treat intertrochanteric fractures, but may be used for subtrochanteric fractures; it has a side plate attached to the distal femur with several cortical screws
