Abstract : There is an increase in the incidence of the intertrochanteric fracture due to the rise in the life expectancy of the people. The intertrochanteric fracture is commonly surgically treated by either DHS or PFN. The hospital database was searched for all intertrochanteric fractures over three years (2015 through 2018). This is a retrospective study done in 100 patients with intertrochanteric fractures treated by PFN (66 patients) and DHS (34 patients). Both the devices were compared in terms of complications and outcomes. The various complications that occurred in patients with intertrochanteric fracture treated are bed sores(15%), shortening more than 1cm(10%), reoperation due to implant related complications(8%), varus collapse(5%), persistent hip pain(5%), restriction of hip movements(5%), deep vein thrombosis(3%), screw migration (3%), failure to achieve closed reduction(3%), compression lag screw cutout (3%), fracture of lateral cortex(2%), mortality(2%), post-operative wound infection(2%), periprosthetic fracture (1%), mean blood loss in DHS(300ml) whereas in PFN(200ml).
