Abstract:   (863 Views)
Background: Femoral neck fracture is a common and difficult injury, especially in the elderly. The duration between the fracture and the surgery, as well as the quality of the reduction and fixation, all affect the outcome. 
Objectives: This study aimed to evaluate the outcomes of cannulated cancellous screw fixation for femur neck fracture and to compare them with similar studies that used the same technique.
Methods: A total of 20 patients with femoral neck fractures were included in this prospective study and monitored for one year after surgery. Harris hip score was used to evaluate the functional outcome.
Results: According to Harris hip score, most of our patients were in good pre-morbid functional condition. Nine patients (45%) had excellent results, 5 patients (25%) had good results, 4 patients (20%) had fair results, and 2 patients (10%) had poor results. Ninety percent of our patients had a good prognosis.
Conclusion: Cannulated cancellous screw fixation for the intracapsular femoral neck fracture preserves biology and provides good functional outcomes in elderly patients.
