  1. Fulltext. Health status before and mortality after hip fracture.

    Article - En anglais


    A cohort study was done to determine the direct impact of hip fracture on mortality in older people.

    Survival was compared between 211 hip fracture patients from a defined area and 201 non-hip fracture control subjects randomly selected from the same area.

    The mortality rate 1 year after hip fracture was 21.7% ; 1-year mortality in the comparison group was 4.7%. The crude hazard ratio for hip fracture and mortality was 4.0 (95% confidence interval [CI]=2.2,7.4) ; adjusting for multiple health-related variables reduced it to 3.3 (95% CI=1.7,6.5).

    This finding suggests that the observed excess mortality after hip fracture is not explained by poor prefracture health status.
