Abstract: Objective · To compare the clinical and functional outcomes of cannulated screw (CS) with sliding hip screw (SHS) in the fixation of Pauwels Ⅲ femoral neck fractures systematically. Methods · In the meta-analysis, articles were searched Pubmed database, Embase database, Cochrane library, CNKI database, and Sinomed database. The selected articles were analyzedRevman 5.26 software. Results · Six clinical studies met the inclusion criteria. A total of 350 patients including 213 with CS fixations and 137 with SHS fixations were pooled in the meta-analysis. The results showed that the non-rate in SHS group was significantly lower than that in CS group. However, the surgery time was significantly shorter in CS group. Conclusion · SHS fixation has the advantage of reducing postoperative non-rate in Pauwels Ⅲ femoral neck fractures, but the operative process is relatively complicated, which seemingly causes more blood loss during surgery, and may lead to a less satisfactory functional recovery.
