  1. After a mean interval of 21.5 months (range 6–43 months) 14 / 27 patients of group 3 were available for a clinical and radiological follow-up. 5 patients had deceased after a median of 13 months; 6 patients suffered from dementia or were non-compliant. 2 patients had moved from the area. The age and sex weighted mean value of the CMS demonstrated a functional outcome within the range of this specific population
  2. Consolidation for proximal fractures was completed within the 3 months period after surgery and within the 6 months period for metaphyseal and diaphyseal fractures. No prolonged healing was observed
