Cemented vs Non-cemented Semiendoprosthesis in the Treatment of Proximal Femoral Fractures
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Conditions||hip fracture, proximal femoral fracture|
|Treatments||cemented semiendoprosthesis, non-cemented|
|Sponsor||Kuopio University Hospital|
|Collaborator||The Finnish Research Foundation for Orthopaedics and Traumatology|
|Start date||October 2008|
|End date||December 2014|
|Trial size||400 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT00859378, KUH5203038|
The hip semiendoprosthesis is an acceptable method to treat the proximal femoral fractures. Traditionally, the cemented version of the semiendoprosthesis has been used for this indication. However, the cementing carries a risk of fat embolism during the pressurization of the cement. The fat embolism can be avoided when using the non-cemented semiendoprosthesis. In this study we want to find out whether there are any differences in the treatment results between the cemented and non-cemented semiendoprostheses when treating the proximal femoral fractures.
