Currently we are doing an RCT on the function of the Trochanteric Support Plate(TSP) in combination with the Dynamic Hip Screw(DHS) in collaboration with Diakonhjemmet hospital. The goal is to establish if the TSP provides additional stability or not. Fractures of the AO 31-A2 type is randomised to treatment with the DHS with or without the TSP. Followup is done with RSA.
In addition we are doing a retrospective study on the use of the TSP at Ullevål University Hospital.
