Abstract

Hip fracture is much more common after the age of 65 year old, and this malady has increased because to the longer average life span with the advances of medical care. Despite the development of the treatments and rehabilitation techniques, hip fracture is well known for having high rates of complications and mortality. The risk factors, mechanisms of injury and the underline disease of hip fracture are also well known, and this has helped these patients to recover as soon as possible and to walk and move earlier after appropriate surgical operations. Most fractures must be treated by an open operation and performing rigid internal fixation or arthroplasty. We report here on the major operational treatments for femur neck fracture and intertrochanter fracture.
