Abstract
Arthroplasty appears to be superior to internal fixation, with regard to complication rates, as a treatment for displaced femoral neck fractures. Less is known about the result as perceived by the patient. The aims of this prospective observational study were (1) to determine whether patient-reported outcomes after a displaced femoral neck fracture can be evaluated on a nationwide basis by means of a mailed survey, and (2) to evaluate differences among treatment methods with respect to patient-reported pain, health-related quality of life, and satisfaction with the surgical result.
