Management of fracture through the narrow part of the neck of the femur is still a challenge to orthopedic surgeons. Inspite of revolutionary changes from the time of Sir Astley Cooper (1824), there is not a single procedure which can claim 100 percent successful results. Careful scrutiny of the results of internal fixation, reveals a success rate of 60 to 70 percent. Many a times a second operation is needed either in the form of replacement arthroplasty of McMurray’s osteotomy. T.P McMurray in 1936 employed displacement osteotomy in the treatment of non-union of fracture of the neck of the femur and suggested its use for fresh cases also. In this country several surgeons (Gupta and Atri 1963) have advocated primary osteotomy as advised by Allende and Lezama (1951) in such cases.
