Oxford Hip Scores were obtained from 37 patients with a mean score of 39.7 (range 11-47).

A group of 110 patients with an intra-capsular NOF fracture who had undergone either THA or Bipolar hemi-arthroplasty and were still alive at the time of follow up were retrospectively identified and matched using the National Hip Fracture Database...
