Aim: to perform comparative analysis of surgical outcomes of patients with extraarticular fractures of proximal femur with the use of various types of external osteosynthesis. Material and Methods. 169 patients with extaarticular fractures of proximal femur who underwent surgical interventions with various kinds of external osteosynthesis were the subject of the study. Results. Extra-cortical osteosynthesis with DHS-construction provided the restoration of anatomic and functional characteristics by 90.3±0.6% of normal values in the short-term and by 95.2±0.4% in the long-term postoperative period. The implantation of intramedullary constructs resulted in high percentage of positive short-term (92.1±0.6%) and long-term (96.7±0.75%) treatment outcomes. Conclusion. The use of intramedullary osteosynthesis
