Proximal femoral fractures are among the most common injuries that require surgical treatment. Since it is typically seen in elderly individuals, these patients should undergo comprehensive medical examination prior to surgical approval or surgery. Although hip fracture is rarely observed in young individuals, preoperative preparations may take longer than usual, because hip fractures in this group of patients are caused generally by high-energy traumas. Therefore, pain reduction during the preoperative preparatory period is important in hip fracture patients for both groups. Since traction is believed to reduce pain, skin traction is used in many hip fracture patients. (1,2) It is demonstrated in some studies that skin traction does not provide any advantage in pain control, and that additional analgesic agents are required. (1-7) However, skin traction is still applied in practice, possibly to create the impression that active measures are being taken for pain and fracture control. (2,8)
