27 patients with a stable intertrochanteric fracture scheduled to treatment with closed reduction and internal fixation were randomized to fluoroscopy during surgery with one or two fluoroscopes. This study aimed to compare radiation and operation times. Results indicated that both radiation time and operation time were significantly shorter when surgery was performed using two fluoroscopes versus...
