Background: Increased life expectancy causes higher prevalence of chronic diseases and greater frailty among older persons. Osteoarthritis and hip fracture are the leading causes of disability among the older persons in high income countries. Recent studies showed that patients undergoing hip fracture surgery have an increased risk of mortality and developing complications. The aim of this study was to compare the occurrence of in-hospital mortality events, complications, and 30-hospital readmissions among patients undergoing hip fracture surgery (HFS) and elective hip replacement (EHR).

Abstract

Background: Increased life expectancy causes higher prevalence of chronic diseases and greater frailty among older persons. Osteoarthritis and hip fracture are the leading causes of disability among the older persons in high income countries. Recent studies showed that patients undergoing hip fracture surgery have an increased risk of mortality and developing complications. The aim of this study was to compare the occurrence of in-hospital mortality events, complications, and 30-hospital readmissions among patients undergoing hip fracture surgery (HFS) and elective hip replacement (EHR).
