This study is to analyse the surgical management of intertrochanteric fractures using dynamic hip screw and its outcomes
regarding union of fracture and early mobilisation of the patient.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
A study of 30 cases of IT fracture in period of May 2014 to April 2016 was carried out to testify anatomical and functional
outcomes of treatment with DHS and results were calculated by Kyle’s criteria.
Out of 30 cases, 76.67% united in 12 to 14 weeks at an average of 13.51 weeks and analysis as per Kyle’s criteria 16.67%
excellent, 60% good and 20% fair results.
Internal fixation with DHS allows controlled collapse at fracture site and allows early mobilisation and DHS remains implant of
choice for IT fracture.
