Abstract

In comparison with monofilament wire, multifilament cable was found to be a more suitable material for fixation of the greater trochanter. It is versatile, easy to work with and has superior mechanical properties. The "trochanter cable-grip system" was developed to exploit the use of multifilament cable as a means of reattaching the greater trochanter and experimental studies have yielded excellent results. This system was subjected to clinical trials for over four years in 321 hips and, at its present state of development, the incidence of detachment has been reduced to 1.5 per cent and that of cable breakage to 3.1 per cent.
