Intertrochanteric fractures are one of the common fractures encountered in today's orthopaedic practice. Over time, a number of implants have been used for the same. Multiple studies have been conducted in the past to study the advantages and disadvantages of the proximal femoral nail and the dynamic hip screw. However, the ideal choice of the implant remains a matter of debate. This study deals with the comparison of the Proximal femoral nailing (PFN) versus Dynamic hip screw (DHS) in

During this period 30 cases of adult patients with intertrochanteric fractures of femur were selected according to the inclusion criteria and classified according to the AO classification. Of the 30 cases,16 were operated using a proximal femoral nail and 14 were operated using dynamic hip screw. Aims: To assess the functional outcome and radiological outcome in cases of Intertrochanteric fractures treated with proximal femoral nailing and dynamic hip screw. And to study and compare the intra-operative parameters in both modes of treatment like duration, blood loss, radiological exposure. Methods and Material: A prospective study was conducted from 2015 to 2017 during which 30 cases of Intertrochanteric fractures those fulfilled the inclusion criteria were operated either using Proximal femoral nailing or
