Abstract: The purpose of this study was to assess the relationship between fracture collapse and patient function for surgically repaired unstable intertrochanteric hip fractures. Post-operative collapse was measured using radiographic analysis and compared with patient functional outcome as measured by the validated Hip Fracture Functional Recovery Score. It was found that increased fracture collapse correlated with higher functional outcome scores, which suggests the benefits of compression during healing outweigh the potential biomechanical compromise associated with collapse.
