Introduction and Objectives: The Aim of this study is to evaluate the Short Term Functional Outcome of Unipolar and Bipolar hemiarthroplasty in Intracapsular neck of femur fracture.
Materials and Methods: 40 patients with Intracapsular fracture neck of femur were included in this study. 20 patients were treated with unipolar hemiarthroplasty and 20 patients with bipolar hemiarthroplasty, respectively. In both the groups, patients were evaluated for functional outcome by using Harris hip score. The Data was analysed by SPSS 20.00 using Chi-square test.
Results: Our overall mean Harris hip score pre operatively for unipolar hemiarthroplasty was 36.2 and bipolar hemiarthroplasty was 39.1 which increased to 81.8 for unipolar and 85.05 for bipolar hemiarthroplasty respectively, with p-value of <0> Conclusion: The results of our study shows that uncemented bipolar hemiarthroplasty gave better results when compared with uncemented unipolar hemiartheoplasty. Our results also shows that, cemented bipolar hemiarthroplasty gave better results when compared with cemented unipolar hemiarthroplasty clinically. Thus, Bipolar hemiarthroplasty did better when compared with unipolar hemiarthroplasty in general.

Keywords: Unipolar hemiarthroplasty, Bipolar hemiarthroplasty, Fracture neck of femur, Harris hip score.
