The hip replacement is usually viewed as a salvage procedure for failed fixation treatment in addressing hip fractures. In this case series, the researchers looked into partial hip replacement surgery as a primary treatment in dealing with hip fractures. 61 patients that suffered a hip fracture, 30 femoral neck fractures, and 31 intertrochanteric fractures, were diagnosed through standard radiographs and were managed with partial hip replacement at the hospital. The results showed that partial hip replacement as a primary treatment for hip fractures, both femoral neck, and intertrochanteric fractures, show promising results in terms of shortened hospital length of stay and decreased mortality rates.
