Abstract

PURPOSE: To evaluate the radiographic, clinical results between who had intertrochnateric fracture, treated with ITST with a standard or a mini-incision. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We selected each 20 patients of intertrochanteric fracture which were treated with ITST with a standard incision or a mini-incision from June 2004 to July 2006. We compared of mean operative time, transfusion doses and postoperative VAS score between two groups. We evaluated the radiographic results by follow-up radiography and the clinical results with the mobility score of Parker and Palmer and Salvati and Wilson hip function scoring system. RESULTS: Mean operative time, transfusion doses and postoperative VAS score were significantly less in the mini-incision there were 87.8 min., 2.0 pints and 4.2 for the standard group versus 40.3 min., 1.1 pints and 3.3 for the mini group. The radiographic results were not significantly different. Decrease of mobility score of Parker and Palmer and Salvati and Wilson hip function scoring system were similar. CONCLUSION: Mini-incision significantly reduces operative time, transfusion doses and postoperative pain for fixation intertrochanteric fracture treated with ITST.
