We compared the invasion of Gamma nails (GN) and Compression hip screws (CHS) in operations to determine blood loss.25 trochanteric fractures treated with GN, and 24 with CHS were available for prospective study. We exchange the amount of transfuse blood for the rate of change of hemoglobin content (Hb), and investigated the difference of it. Hb for GN was more reduced compared to Hb for CHS from time of operation to the next morning. But external blood loss for GN was less compared to CHS.We concluded that internal blood loss for GN was much higer than CHS, so the invasion of GN is not low in the point of blood loss.
