MIS technique involves a cut on the skin where no muscles fibres are damaged and there is hardly 20 ml of blood loss.

“Till recently, a hip fracture in an elderly patient was considered a terminal event. The reason was that if we operate, the surgery is major, it involves blood loss, further trauma to the frail body and many a time, the patient ends up in ICU,” said Ashwani Maichand, Director, Institute of Bone and Joint, MGS Hospital, Delhi, in a statement.
