Hip Fracture

  • Hip fracture

      A hip fracture is a break in the upper quarter of the femur (thigh) bone. The extent of the break depends on the forces that are involved. The type of surgery used to treat a hip fracture is primarily based on the bones and soft tissues affected or on the level of the fracture.

  • Hip fracture

     The patient with a hip fracture will have pain over the outer upper thigh or in the groin. There will be significant discomfort with any attempt to flex or rotate the hip.Nonsurgical Treatment-Patients who might be considered for nonsurgical treatment include those who are too ill to undergo any form of anesthesia and people who were unable to walk before their injury and may have been confined to a bed or a wheelchair.

  • Hip fracture
    The number of hip fracture admissions increased by 15.5 per cent, from 46,495 admissions in 2001/02 to 53,694 admissions in 2010/11.The increase in admissions appears mainly due to the general ageing of the population, as age- and sex-standardised rates have been more or less stable since 2002/03.The proportions of admissions receiving an operation within 24 or 48 hours are common markers of good practice. They have been steadily improving since 2005/06 from values of 51.2 per cent and 69.0 per cent to values of 67.0 per cent and 83.2 per cent, respectively, in 2010/11.
