      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.

    Increases in crude hip fracture incidence rates during the 20th century have been observed in many developed countries. Much of the increase in crude incidence rates can be attributed to simple population aging, but there is also evidence from several countries of an increase in the age-specific incidence rate of hip fracture. For example, crude rates of hip fracture in Rochester, Minnesota, increased by 178 percent between 1940 and 1980, while age-standardized rates increased by 53 percent (20).
