Objective: We thought the stable implant construction may affect outcome for elderly hip fracture so assessed the patients for one year as a consecutive prospective study.

Method: We include 83 patientsall above 60 years old patients who came to our center with unstable intertrochanteric fracture in one-year the end we assess the mortality rate and compared with other study.

Conclusion: It seems stable implant has a little role in mortality rate,but in one year follow up we had 24% mortality and 50% readmission because comorbidity exacerbated which compare to other studies had no deference(p<0.01)

Overview: Opponents of nonoperative treatment for nonambulatory patients suggest that surgery is more effective for pain relief and does not result in unacceptable increased mortality or complications. Ambulatory capability with nonoperative treatment was usually viewed as poor, however some patients do regain some degree of ambulation ability [1].
