Description

Seven moderate strength studies (Anderson et al 17, Finsen et al 18, Needoff et al 19, Resch et al 20, Rosen et al 21, Saygi et al 22, Yip et al 23) compared skin traction to no traction. There was no difference noted between the two groups with regard to decreased pain or decreased doses of analgesia administered. A meta-analysis of the data showed that preoperative traction offered no benefit to hip fracture patients.
One high strength study (Resch et al 24) showed no difference in pain alleviation and number of analgesics administered when comparing skeletal traction to skin traction in hip fracture patients. However, half of the patients in the skeletal traction group found the application of skeletal traction to be painful.
