  1. Fulltext. Treatment and survival among elderly Americans with hip fractures : a population-based study.

    Article - En anglais



    This study was undertaken to examine the patterns of treatment and survival among elderly Americans with hip fracture.


    A 5% national sample of Medicare claims was used to identify patients who sustained hip fractures between 1986 and 1989.

    In comparing treatment patterns across regions, direct standardization was used to derive age-and race-adjusted percentages.

    Logistic regression and Cow regression were used to examine short-and long-term survival.


    In the United States, 64% of femoral neck fractures were treated with arthroplasty ; 90% of pertrochanteric fractures were treated with internal fixation.
