Six randomized controlled trials were included in this meta-analysis comparing helical blade implants to screw implants in the treatment of trochanteric fractures. The purpose was to determine, primarily, if there was a difference between groups in cut-out rate. Comparisons for both implants were drawn based on implant positioning, complications apart from cut-out, operative time, fluoroscopy time...
