Abstract

The technique of operative treatment changed and while during the 1990s many patients with femoral neck fractures were treated by implanting a total endoprosthesis, in the 2000s treatment was dominated by the hemi prosthesis. During the two periods of study use of the osteosynthesis technique decreased. In conclusion, the study showed an obvious compression of performance in trauma surgery but despite everything there was a clear improvement of treatment quality with respect to complication rates.
