Abstract

16 adults with neck of femur fracture, treated either with Titanium cancellous screw fixation or Titanium sliding hip screw were followed up for 2 year with clinical scoring and MRI. 93% fractures united. Their Harris Hip score were near normal in 66% cases. According to Steinberg classification, MRI of five patients had avascular necrosis (AVN) (Stage II =3, stage I = 2) 4 of these had high velocity injury. Three patients with AVN had poor results while two (stage 1) had fair results. Functional recovery and patient’s ability to do their daily activities did not correlate with post-operative MRI findings of AVN.
