A prospective study of 88 cases of trochanteric fractures of femur was done with average follow up of 24 months. Patients were divided in 3 groups; conservative hospital conservative home; operative group. Pre designed proforma was filled for every patient and was analysed on basis of age, sex, rural/urban background, mode of injury, grade and stability of fracture, socio-economic status and hospital stay. The patients were followed up both clinically and radiologically. Final results were tabulated on basis of Kyle’s criteria of pain, limp, shortening, coxa vara, limitation of hip and knee movements, ability to sit cross legged and squatting and graded as excellent, good, fair, poor for each category. The study shows that those patients who were managed in hospital (whether operated or not) showed better results than those managed at home. In stable fractures conservative management gives equally comparable results to operative methods.
