Abstract

Most commonly in elder patients due to trivial trauma. Especially more common in females. Osteoporosis remains the most important factor contributing to hip fractures. In the young population these fractures are result of high energy trauma. We compared outcome of intertrochanteric fracture of neck of femur type 3, 4 and 5 treated with bone graft and without bone graft. However introduction of bone grafting in patients with fracture IT failed to show any benefit in rate of union at fracture site. Bone grafting along with fixation does not have any added benefit in terms of degree of collapse when compared with the group without bone grafting.
