Objective: The objective of the study is to evaluate and compare the results of Halifax and proximal femoral nail antirotation-Asia (PFNA II) in proximal femur fractures. Methods: From December 2018 to August 2020, 30 proximal femur fracture nailing were performed. After applying the exclusion criteria, there were 24 patients to be evaluated. The patients were divided into two groups: Halifax group and PFNA II group. The scoring system used for clinical evaluation was Harris hip Score. Results: The follow-up period in both the groups was at least 6 months. The proportion of patients with improvements of Harris hip score at different time intervals of the patients treated with Halifax nail was marginally higher than that of the patients treated with Halifax and PFNA II nail but it was not significant (P > 0.05). Conclusion: No statistically significant difference was found between Halifax nail and Halifax and PFNA II nail in surgeries done at this particular institution after comparative analysis of Harris hip scores and other parameters.
