Is calcium phosphate augmentation a viable option for osteoporotic hip fractures?

Is calcium phosphate augmentation a viable option for osteoporotic hip fractures? Summary The use of calcium phosphate bone cement has been described to allow for retention of reduction. Therefore, we evaluated whether augmentation with resorbable calcium phosphate could improve fracture stability in osteoporotic hip fractures. The results showed that augmentation with calcium phosphate cement significantly improved the stability of intertrochanteric fractures. Introduction The aim with this study was to measure whether augmentation with resorbable calcium phosphate cement could improve fracture stability in osteoporotic hip fractures. Methods We retrospectively reviewed 82 patients who underwent closed reduction and internal fixation with proximal femoral nail (PFN) for unstable intertrochanteric fractures between 2014 and 2017. In 42 of 82 patients, patients were treated with a PFN alone (group I). These patients were compared with 40 patients for whom the same device combined with calcium phosphate cement for augmentation was used (group II). Questionnaire surveys or telephone interviews were conducted and patients completed a self-report Harris hip score (HHS) and visual analog scale (VAS) scores. Radiographic outcomes including mean sliding distance of screw, femoral shortening, and varus collapse were compared. Postoperative complications were compared.
