Purpose: There are few studies compares surgery with proximal femoral nail antirotation (PFNA) in lateral decubitus with that in supine position about their advantages and disadvantages for patients with intertrochanteric femoral fractures. Previous studies reported conflicting findings. This meta-analysis was to compare the efficacy and safety of surgery with PFNA in different surgical positions.
