Abstract

The number of femoral neck fractures (FNFs) worldwide will drastically increase in the next few decades, reaching 6.3 million by 2050. In the future, therefore, newly-qualified orthopaedic surgeons will treat this kind of injury more frequently than in past decades. This prospective observational study aims to assess whether hip hemiarthroplasty with modular neck, performed via the Hardinge approach, can be safely carried out by orthopaedic residents.
