    Fixation Using Alternative Implants For The Treatment Of Hip Fractures (FAITH): A MultiCentre Randomized Trial Comparing Sliding Hip Screws And Cancellous Screws On Revision Surgery Rates And Quality Of Life In The Treatment Of Femoral Neck Fractures [LCID Study Number: 2009-050] The purpose of this study is to investigate whether multiple cancellous screws versus sliding hip screws will decrease the rate of revision surgeries in patients with femoral neck fractures (hip fractures). We will also compare functional recovery, complications and quality of life. Principal Investigator(s):

    Intramedullary Nail Versus Sliding Hip Screw Inter-Trochanteric Evaluation (INSITE): A Multi-Center Randomized Controlled Trial of Intramedullary Nails Versus Sliding Hip Screws in the Management of Intertrochanteric Fractures of the Hip [LCID Study Number: 2011-097] The purpose of this study is to assess the impact of Gamma3 intramedullary nails versus sliding hip screws on health-related quality of life as measured by the EuroQuol-5D at 52 weeks in individuals with trochanteric fractures. Secondary outcomes include revision surgery rates, fracture healing rates, fracture related adverse events, and health-related quality of life, including the Parker mobility score and Harris Hip Score.
