Aim: A comparative evaluation of the surgical treatment and outcome of patients with stable intertrochanteric fractures treated with long versus short PFNA2.Objectives: Inter-trochanteric fractures of femur are among the most common orthopedic injury in elderly age group. Proximal femoral nailing with A2 screws has recently become a popular method of stabilization of inter-trochanteric fractures in adults. Stable trochanteric fractures can be treated using the conventional proximal femoral nailing method or the newly deviced proximal femoral nailing with A2 screws. The present study was conducted to assess and evaluate the outcomes following treatment of stable inter-trochanteric fracture femur with proximal femoral nail A2 long vs short proximal femoral nail A2.
