The treatment of choice for a displaced femoral neck fracture is still a matter of debate, with the answer most likely hinging on patient age and activity level. In most cases, younger patients  generally those under age 60  are offered open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF). Hemiarthroplasty and total hip arthroplasty (THA) are usually better options for older patients, [1-4] with recent studies suggesting that outcomes of the 2 procedures are about equal in this population.
