181. Mortality associated with delay in operation after hip fracture: observational study.

Mortality associated with delay in operation after hip fracture: observational study. OBJECTIVE: To estimate the number of deaths and readmissions associated with delay in operation after femoral fracture. DESIGN: Analysis of inpatient hospital episode statistics. SETTING: NHS hospital trusts in England with at least 100 admissions for fractured neck of femur during the study period. Patients People aged > or = 65 admitted from home with fractured neck of femur and discharged between April (...) 2001 and March 2004. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: In hospital mortality and emergency readmission within 28 days. RESULTS: There were 129,522 admissions for fractured neck of femur in 151 trusts with 18,508 deaths in hospital (14.3%). Delay in operation was associated with an increased risk of death in hospital, which was reduced but persisted after adjustment for comorbidity. For all deaths in hospital, the odds ratio for more than one day's delay relative to one day or less was 1.27 (95% confidence

182. Replacement arthroplasty versus internal fixation for extracapsular hip fractures in adults.

Replacement arthroplasty versus internal fixation for extracapsular hip fractures in adults. BACKGROUND: Internal fixation, commonly used for extracapsular hip fractures, may fail particularly in unstable fractures. Replacement of the hip using arthroplasty, often used for intracapsular fractures, has been used as an alternative. OBJECTIVES: To compare replacement arthroplasty with internal fixation for the treatment of extracapsular hip fractures in adults. SEARCH STRATEGY: We searched (...) the Cochrane Bone, Joint and Muscle Trauma Group Specialised Register (December 2005), the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (The Cochrane Library Issue 4, 2005), MEDLINE, EMBASE, the UK National Research Register, several orthopaedic journals, conference proceedings and reference lists of articles. SELECTION CRITERIA: Randomised and quasi-randomised trials comparing replacement arthroplasty with an internal fixation implant for adults with an extracapsular hip fracture. DATA COLLECTION

193. Nutritional supplementation for hip fracture aftercare in older people.

Nutritional supplementation for hip fracture aftercare in older people. BACKGROUND: Fractures of the hip are an important cause of later ill health and mortality in older people. People with hip fractures are often malnourished at the time of fracture, and have poor food intake in hospital. OBJECTIVES: This review assesses the effects of nutritional interventions in older people recovering from hip fracture. SEARCH STRATEGY: We searched the Cochrane Musculoskeletal Injuries Group Specialised (...) Register, the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (The Cochrane Library issue 3, 2004), MEDLINE (1966 to October week 1 2004), Nutrition Abstracts and Reviews, EMBASE, BIOSIS, CINAHL, HEALTHSTAR, the National Research Register and reference lists. We contacted investigators and handsearched four nutrition journals.

194. Association between screening for osteoporosis and the incidence of hip fracture.

Association between screening for osteoporosis and the incidence of hip fracture. BACKGROUND: Because direct evidence for the effectiveness of screening is lacking, guidelines disagree on whether people should be screened for osteoporosis. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether population-based screening for osteoporosis in older adults is associated with fewer incident hip fractures than usual medical care. DESIGN: Nonconcurrent cohort study. SETTING: Population-based cohort enrolled (...) in the Cardiovascular Health Study (CHS) from 4 states (California, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and North Carolina). PATIENTS: 3107 adults 65 years of age and older who attended their CHS study visits in 1994-1995. MEASUREMENTS: 31 participant characteristics (including demographic characteristics, medical histories, medications, and physical examination findings) and incident hip fractures over 6 years of follow-up. INTERVENTION: Bone density scans (dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry [DEXA] at the hip) for participants

The authors (...) concluded that alendronate was associated with reductions in hip fracture rates in women with postmenopausal osteoporosis. The evidence presented in the review appears to support the authors' conclusions, but poor reporting of the review methods means that the reliability of the conclusions is unclear.

The authors concluded that early or open fracture reduction may not reduce the risk of nonunion or avascular necrosis, and suggested that a higher incidence of nonunion follows open reduction.
