One thousand one hundred sixty-nine elderly Japanese patients who sustained a hip fracture were observed prospectively.
Ninety-two percent had operative fracture treatment.
Hospital length of stay averaged 67 days ; 81% of patients were discharged to their place of residence where they resided before sustaining the fracture.
Mortality rates at 120 days, 1 year, and 2 years after injury were 6%, 11%, and 19%, respectively.
At 1-year followup, ambulatory status was recovered to that of the level experienced before injury in 67% of patients.
