Today, in the treatment of hip fracture, prosthesis surgery is only used when it is necessary. The reasons for this are that prosthetic surgeries create large wounds, cause significant bleeding, and are very aggressive surgeries in which a part of the broken hip bone of the patient is removed and replaced with a metal prosthesis.
For this reason, osteosynthesis surgeries aiming to bring together and fuse broken bones, in which hip nails or screws are used instead of prosthesis, have begun to be preferred whenever possible.
Fractures of the hip, especially in the region with a high union potential (trochanteric region fractures), can now be treated with hip nails instead of prostheses at any age. In hip neck fractures, if the fracture type is appropriate, hip screw treatment is applied.
