The authors compare the results obtained in a group of 100 patients submitted to pertrochanteric osteosynthesis during the year 1991 (50 with a gamma nail and 50 with a compression-sliding plate) based on parameters of anesthesiology. The same type of anesthesiology was used in all 100 of the patients, as similar were the general clinical conditions of the patients, ASA classification, and the mean value of preoperative hemoglobin. The gamma nail proved to be preferable in terms of a shorter amount of time required for surgery, a minor loss of blood intra and postoperatively, and minor incidence of complications.
