Objective: We thought the stable implant construction may affect outcome for elderly hip fracture so assessed the patients for one year as a consecutive prospective study.

Method: We include 83 patients. all above 60 years old patients who came to our center with unstable intertrochanteric fracture in one-year admission at the end we assess the mortality rate and compared with other study.

Conclusion: It seems stable implant has a little role in mortality rate but in one year follow up we had 24% mortality and 50% readmission because comorbidity exacerbated which compare to other studies had no deference(p< 0.01)
