  1. Contralateral fracture of the proximal femur : Implications for planning trials.

    Article - En anglais

    In three consecutive years 462 patients over the age of 60 years presented at Waikato Hospital, Hamilton, New Zealand, with a fracture of the proximal femur.

    Within two years, 11 (2.4%) returned with a fracture of the contralateral femur.

    If the effectiveness of any form of treatment aiming at reducing the incidence of contralateral fracture were subjected to a trial, a sample size of 5000, randomly distributed equally between treatment and placebo groups, would be needed for the trial to have a power of 80% to detect a reduction.
