One hundred and twenty-three patients of intracapsular fracture of neck of femur were treated by intertrochanteric displacement osteotomy with or without internal fixation. Sixty-nine patients were adequately followed. Results were considered good in 256, satisfactory in 30, and poor in 14 patients. Average shortening was 2.5 cm. Union at fracture site was observed in 70 percent of the cases immobilized by plaster of Paris spica, and in 23 percent of cases treated by internal fixation.
