Fractures were classified according to AO/OTA and Evans classification. Patients were treated with Cemented Bipolar prosthesis Results: Out of 22 patients, 14 (63.6 %) were males and 08 (36.4 %) were females. The most common age group was between 71 - 90 years in which females were more affected. The most common fracture type was Evans type 3and 4 and AO/OTA 31 A-2.2 /2.3. The end results based on Harris Hip Score Functional end results were 45% excellent, 35% good and 20% fair . There were no poor result.
