Intramedullary Fixation for Hip Fracture Survey

I’d be extremely grateful if you could spare a couple of minutes of your time to complete a short survey on intramedullary fixation of hip fractures. I’m preparing a NIHR funding bid pertaining to a comparison of short and long nails and having the perspectives of a wide range of Society members would be invaluable in doing this. Please do also get in touch if you think your centre might be interested in participating in a trial!
