The Gamma nail is associated with specific complications, among which is anterior thigh pain and fracture of the femoral shaft. Intramedullary implants for internal fixation of the proximal femur withstand higher static and a severalfold higher cyclical loading than DHS types of implants.
subtrochanteric fractures with proximal femoral nailing and DHS. on average of 3 days with a range of 111 days. The average time iii)To critically analyze both the groups for taken for DHS procedure was 124.

Figure 3. Preoperative x ray of group B (D. H. S). Cephalomedullary Nailing of the Proximal Femur Thomas A. Russell DEFINITION Fractures of the proximal femur are usually grouped into four major types reflecting differences in the anatomic and physiologic character of these regions: Femoral head fractures Intracapsular femoral neck fractures Pertrochanteric fractures (also referred introduction 1 comparative study between dynamic hip screw and proximal femoral nail in the management of trochanteric and subtrochanteric femoral fractures.
Feb 19, 2013 The purpose of this metaanalysis was to find out whether the proximal femoral nail was better than the dynamic hip screw in the treatment of trochanteric fractures with respect to operation time, blood transfusion, hospital stay, wound complications, number of reoperation, and mortality rate.
PFN Proximal Femoral Nail Surgical technique StandardShort PFN Long PFN Insert standardshort proximal femoral nail Carefully insert the nail manually as far as possible into the femoral opening.
Slight twisting hand movements help insertion. If the nail cannot be inserted, select a smaller size nail
