A message from the trial team:

"The WHiTE Four randomised clinical trial looked into effect on health-related quality of life of the X-Bolt dynamic plating system versus the sliding hip screw for the fixation of trochanteric fractures of the hip in adults over age of 60.

A total of 1,128 participants were randomised with 564 participants allocated to each group.

There was no evidence of any differences between treatment groups in any of the secondary outcomes. The pattern and overall risk of adverse events associated with both treatments was similar."
