Abstract We reviewed all randomised trials comparing different implants for treating intracapsular fractures of the hip and, where possible, the data were combined. 25 randomised trials were identified involving 4,925 patients. Screws appeared to be superior to pins. It was not possible to determine the optimum number or type of screws. No advantage was shown for an implant with a side-plate.
