    This is a retrospective & prospective study was conducted in the Department of Orthopaedics of Index Medical College Hospital and Research Centre, Indore, M.P. from April 2020 to December 2021. In this study 70 cases of closed Trochanteric fractures that fit into any of the five grades of Evan’s classification of trochanteric fractures with age 20 year and above which were admitted in the Orthopaedic wards and treated by internal fixation using standard Dynamic Hip Screw (DHS) were included. Pathological trochanteric fractures were excluded as their functional results differ. Result: In our study 70 % patients is age between 40 – 80 years and advised procedure to improve result is more required in evan grade III , IV and V . functional result correlates with anatomic reduction achieved intra operatively and out of 45 patients 41 patients has good and excellent result . Conclusion: Strong association with functional outcome and high statistical correlation with excellent or good results indicate that achieving anatomic reduction and attaining TAD index value less than 25mm are recommended for obtaining better functional outcome and good predictor of functional outcome.
