Abstract The results for a consecutive series of 1024 trochanteric hip fractures surgically treated by internal fixation with a sliding hip screw in a single centre are presented. The mean age of patients was 81.7 years and 78\% were female. Seventy-five percent of fractures were classified as unstable. At 1 year from injury, 69\% of patients were surviving. Of these, 95\% had minimal or no pain, 85\% had at least returned to their pre-fracture level of accommodation and 50\% to their pre-fracture level of mobility. Complications related to surgical fixation were encountered in 3.6\% of cases. Overall, 2.6\% of patients required further surgery as a result of these. While significant mortality remains an issue, the overall fixation failure rate and re-operation rate for trochanteric fractures fixed with a sliding hip screw is low. The final outcome of surgery for the survivors is good, with most patients returning to their pre-fracture level of accommodation and mobility, with minimal pain 1-year post-fracture.
