Abstract

A series of 145 patients (77 males and 68 females) with fracture of the neck of the femur treated by primary replacement arthroplasty (prosthesis) is presented. The indications, complications and results of operation are discussed. Prosthetic replacement has yielded satisfactory results in 91.7 per cent of cases and is a particularly suitable procedure for Indians.
