Background: Intertrochanteric fractures remains the common type of injuries amongst hip fracture. There are different types of classifications systems and different modalities for fixation available. Surgical treatment represents the optimal strategy for managing intertrochanteric fractures. It allows early mobilization rehabilitation and functional recovery and reduces the risk of postoperative complications.
Material and methods: Our study consisted of forty two cases of intertrochanteric fracture of femur treated surgically with BIAXIAL PLATE SYSTEM at our institute between July 2012- Dec 2014. Two patients were died within six months of operation so 40 patients were available for follow up. So anatomical and functional assessment of forty patients done.
Results: Anatomical results were assessed by presence or absence of shortening, deformity and range of movement. 95 % cases had good results and 5% cases had poor results with shortening more than 1cm in one case and limited hip movement in another case. Functional assessment of 40 patients were done by Harris hip score system and we got excellent result were noted in 12 cases, good in 23 cases, fair in 05 cases and none had poor results.
Conclusion: Osteosynthesis with Biaxial Plate offers the advantage of high rotational stability of the head-neck fragment. The advantage of fixation in two axis is, Increased torsional strength 10 times than DHS. Decreases coring out and loosening. Increased axial deforming strength 3 times than DHS. Decreases posterior and superior cut out.
