Sixty consecutive patients with fracture of the proximal femur (41 trochanteric 19 displaced fracture neck of the femur), were treated by Dynamic hip screw implant system using 135 degree plate. Age of the patients varied from 23-110 years. There was one death due to concomitant medical problem, unrelated to surgical procedure, and 2 superficial wound infections in the whole series. Union was achieved in all patients and there was no implant failure. Early mobilization and weight bearing contributed in achieving 88.1% excellent, 8.4% good and 3.4% poor, end results. By resorting the function of the injured hip, early DHS allows patient the freedom of sitting cross-legged and squatting postures which are essential part of daily activities of life of most of the Arabian and Asian countries. Further, it minimizes the hospital stay and follow up visits of the patients, thereby ensures substantial savings for both the patients and the orthopaedic service.
