At the Trauma Unit of Pisa we performed an observational study reviewing nineties that about 200 patients were treated and underwent surgery for femoral neck fracture from 1998 to 2005. The clinical and radiographic results obtained were discrete, with a mortality of 42.5%, the survivors are still having a good quality of life.
