Abstract

Objective: To study the outcome of Austin Moore Hemireplacement Arthroplasty in terms of Harris Hip Score and Mobility and Aid Score in fracture neck of femur in elderly.

Design: A prospective randomized study carried out between September 2011 to August 2012 AD.

Methods: We performed 30 Austin Moore hemiarthroplasties in patients aged 65 and above that sustained a displaced femoral neck fracture and evaluated the outcome in terms of Harris Hip Score and Mobility and Aid Score.

Results: Mean HHS at 2 week was 63.93 which increased to 73.83, 80.53 and 86.48 at 6 weeks, 12 weeks and 6 months respectively with overall excellent to good result of 60%. The mean MASM at 6 months was 4.0 whereas the pre-injury MASM was 4.53.

Conclusion: Hemiarthroplasty with Austin Moore Prosthesis is safe and effective method of treatment for displaced fracture neck of femur in elderly. There was early post-operative full weight bearing mobilization with reduction in major complications. The operative duration, post-operative complicationsare comparable to other similar studies done elsewhere. The end functional results also depend on the associated comorbidities and optimum post op rehabilitation.
