    Hip fracture and the MEDOS study. Meeting. Lisbon (PRT), 1992/11/18.

    The development of preventive strategies for hip fractures requires better identification of risk factors.

    The MEDOS study was designed to study prospectively the incidence of hip fracture in 14 centres from six countries and characterise risk factors.

    At one centre (Toulouse), data were gathered from questionnaires completed by 386 cases of hip fracture aged over 50 years and 848 age- and sex-matched controls over a 12-month period.

    Of the 935 variables of the MEDOS questionnaire, 235, grouped into 56 items, were statistically analysed.
