Abstract

PFN are better suited to 31A1 fractures because of their higher rotational stability from the use of dual screws. A short femur and high antecurvation can cause insertion problems in PFN because of the nail design. It is advisable to choose the type of implant during preoperative planning after considering fracture type and patient anatomy.
