Functional Outcome of Hemiarthroplasty in Femoral Neck Fracture After Two Years of Surgery
Keywords:Fractures; hemiarthroplasty; intracapsular.
Introduction: Fractures of the neck of the femur have always presented great challenges to orthopaedic
surgeons and remain in many ways today the unsolved fractures as far as treatment and results are concerned.
Method: To evaluate the functional results at two years or more of Hemiarthroplasty of Hip done at Tata
Main Hospital, Jamshedpur between January 2000–Dec 2000. To evaluate the variables which affect the
final functional outcome.
Results: In this study of functional outcome of hemiarthroplasty 2 years after surgery, total no. of cases done
during year 2000 (Jan 2000–Dec 2000) was 57(n). Out of these 57 cases 19 (33.33%) were male and 38
(66.66%) female. Females had double the no. of hemiarthroplasties than males. The mean age at operation
was 67.03 years.
Conclusions: The functional outcomes may be improved further by a multidisciplinary approach to care,
provided by team of health care personnel working closely together, may be an effective way to improve the
short and long term outcomes.
