Do Concomitant Fractures With Hip Fractures Influence Complication Rate and Functional Outcome
Clinical Orthopedics and Related Research, 06/21/2012
Buecking B et al. – The most frequent concomitant fractures were typical osteoporotic fractures (radial and humeral fractures). Concomitant fractures did not influence length of hospitalization, in–hospital mortality, complication rate, and function. Hip fracture and comorbidities predicted the incidence of complications and patients’ function.
