83 unstable peri-trochanteric fractures were randomized to undergo fixation using either the Gamma 3 intramedullary nailing system (Stryker) or dynamic hip screws (DHS). The purpose of this study was to compare these two interventions with respect to long-term safety and functional outcomes up to 6 years post-operation. This study found that the G3 nailing system for unstable peri-trochanteric fra...
