* All Patients with close intertrochanteric fracture
above 18 years.
Unstable intertrochanteric fracture
in elderly treated with bipolar hemiarthroplasty: A prospective case series.
The study sample was divided into the femoral neck fracture group ( n = 101) and femoral intertrochanteric fracture
group ( n = 97) based on X-ray diagnostic criteria.
The most common fracture was intertrochanteric fracture
. Ninety three patients were assessed by ECG whereas 30 patients had 2 D-ECHO before operation.

of an arthrodesed hip," Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, vol.
59% of the patients, suffering from an intertrochanteric fracture
, were treated by an osteosynthesis using a Gamma3[R] nail ([n.sub.GN] = 8, Stryker, Kalamazoo, MI, USA) or a Dynamic hip screw ([n.sub.DHS] = 3, DePuy Synthes Companies, Zuchwil, Switzerland).
Pseudoaneurysm of the profunda femoris artery due to intertrochanteric fracture
of the hip.
The main findings of our study are increased Kyn/Trp ratio in patients with hip fracture with respect to healthy subjects and in patients with intertrochanteric fracture
when compared to those with collum femoris fracture.
There were 32 cases of failed internal fixation of femoral neck fracture (FIFFNF) and 24 cases of failed internal fixation of intertrochanteric fracture
Patients with femoral intertrochanteric fracture
were considered eligible patients.
These two cases suggest that physicians and surgeons should have a high index of suspicion for PFA pseudoaneurysm during instances of fracture especially if the said fracture is an intertrochanteric fracture
of the hip [16,17].
Cross surface area and cortical thickness: CSA and CT of the two fracture groups showed significant decrease in femoral neck and trochanteric region compared with the control group (p=0.000); There was no significant difference between the parameters of femoral neck fracture group and intertrochanteric fracture
group (Table 1).
