Hip fractures are common injuries in the elderly, with an incidence that continues to rise.
The femoral neck system (FNS) recently emerged as a novel treatment option for femoral neck fractures, but long-term survivability of the implant remains uncertain.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate survivability of the FNS and assess risk factors for implant failure.
One hundred five adult patients who received the FNS (DePuy Synthes, Raynham, MA) for femoral neck fractures (AO/OTA 31B) were included.
Surgeries were performed within a regional hospital system comprising 18 facilities. All patients had a minimum follow-up of 1 year.
The primary outcome measures were cumulative incidence of implant failure and 1-year mortality, including risk factor analysis.
