Hip nailing

Table of content
A hip pinning is a type of surgery to fix a broken (fractured) hip. Another name for hip pinning is fracture repair and internal fixation. Hip pinning uses pins, screws, or plates to help hold broken bones together so they can heal correctly. Your thighbone (femur) meets with your pelvis at your hip joint. If the implanted hip stem is not stable it can cause pain, classically in the groin and thigh. If the pain is from stem movement in the upper femur, we would expect the pain to occur with movement and not during rest.
The surgery takes 2 to 4 hours. Doctors usually use general anesthesia for hip fracture surgeries.
Most people are able to return to work 4 weeks to 4 months after surgery. But it may take 6 months to 1 year for you to fully recover. Some people, especially older people, are never able to move quite as well as they used to. You heal best when you take good care of yourself.
Infection, Bleeding, Blood clots, Injury to nearby nerves, Improper or incomplete healing of the femur, Limping because of changes in leg length, Arthritis.
In some cases, your healthcare provider might want more tests before your surgery. These might include: X-rays, a CT scan, or a MRI study, to look at the bones of your hip and for signs of injury to nearby tissues, Chest X-rays and electrocardiogram, to make sure your heart and lungs are normal, Blood tests, to check how much you have bled and to look at your body chemistry, Urinalysis, to look for signs of infection and to cut the risk for infections after your surgery, You will likely need to avoid eating and drinking until after your surgery is done. Your doctor will remove your stitches or staples 10 days to 3 weeks after your surgery. You may still have some mild pain, and the area may be swollen for 3 to 4 months after surgery. Your doctor will give you medicine for the pain. You will continue the rehabilitation program you started in the hospital.
The implanted femur was investigated with two different materials for the dynamic hip screw: stainless steel and titanium alloy.
