This is a type of orthopaedic implant designed for various types of fractures of hip. The treatment is usually suggested for elderly patients. The procedure involves a surgery and placing of the implant. There are 3 components of a dynamic hip screw, including a lag screw (inserted into the neck of the femur), a side plate and four cortical screws (fixated into the proximal femoral shaft) The idea behind the dynamic compression is that the femoral head component is allowed to move along one plane; since bone responds to dynamic stresses, the native femur may undergo remodeling and proper fracture healing.
