Management of fracture of femoral neck still remains a major and difficult undertaking for an orthopaedic surgeon. Internal fixation is not always successful, because of avascular necrosis and nonunion. For any of these conditions, a second operation, is often required which some patients refuse and some may not be physically and psychologically fit for. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to use a method, that incurs the lowest mortality and morbidity and yet permits rapid mobilization, and return to previous activities and independence.
