5 studies (n=499) comparing proximal femoral nail antirotation (PFNA) and dynamic hip screw (DHS) internal fixation in the treatment of peritrochanteric fractures were included in this meta-analysis to compare the effects of these two treatments on mortality, blood loss, operation time and complications. Pooled results indicated that there were no statistically significant differences in operation...
