Title: Functional outcome of Femoral Neck System (FNS) in the management of neck of femur fractures


Background: The clinical outcome of a new fixation device (femoral neck system, FNS) for femoral neck fractures is not described properly. The main purpose of this study was to evaluate the functional outcome of the patients of femoral neck fractures treated with FNS.
Methods: A prospective study was done among patients aged 60 years or less. On the basis of inclusion and exclusion criteria a final sample size of 30 was considered. Blood loss, type of fracture internal fixation, and length of clinical follow-up were all acquired from patient records. The volume of blood loss was calculated.The mean and standard deviation of continuous variables were reported (with range). Numbers were used to represent discrete variables (percentage of total). ANOVA test and Post Hoc test were performed for intragroup comparisons.
Results:  Out of all 60% were females and 40% were males. The mean age of the patients was 57.4± 11.37 years. The comparison of functional outcomes of the patients treated with FNS using Harris Hip Score. It showed a highly significant  comparison between the patients at post operatively 2 days, 6 weeks and 3 months and 1 year . There were no postoperative complications seen among the patients.
Conclusion: FNS offers superior biomechanical qualities and greatly improved overall build stability. It allows for a significant reduction in operation time, potentially lowering risks and consequences associated with surgery.
