Background The option of primary total hip replacement in patients with fractured neck of femur gives satisfactory functional results, which evokes the idea of this research to study the outcome of total hip replacement (THR) in patients older than 60 years having fractured neck of femur. Patients and methods A total of 40 active patients older than 60 years were included in our series. Patients were operated after a mean of 5 weeks after fracture. All patients were operated on by THR, under regional anesthesia, using modified Hardinge approach in lateral position. Postoperatively, all patients were allowed to bear weight as tolerated on the second day after operation. All patients were followed up at 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months, and every 6 months thereafter. Results The results were good in all patients at 3 months, excellent in 23 patients at 6 months, and excellent among all at 2-year follow-up, with mean harris hip score (HHS) of 94. Conclusion Primary THR is a good line of treatment in active patients older than 60 years with fractured neck of femur.
