Gamma and other cephalocondylic intramedullary nails versus extramedullary implants for extracapsular hip fractures in adults. BACKGROUND: Two types of implants used for the surgical fixation of extracapsular hip fractures are cephalocondylic intramedullary nails, which are inserted into the femoral canal proximally to distally across the fracture, and extramedullary implants (e.g. the sliding hip screw). OBJECTIVES: To compare cephalocondylic intramedullary nails with extramedullary implants (...) for extracapsular hip fractures in adults.

170. Factors associated with 5-year risk of hip fracture in postmenopausal women.

Factors associated with 5-year risk of hip fracture in postmenopausal women. CONTEXT: The 329,000 hip fractures that annually occur in the United States are associated with high morbidity, mortality, and cost. Identification of those at high risk is a step toward prevention. OBJECTIVE: To develop an algorithm to predict the 5-year risk of hip fracture in postmenopausal women. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: A total of 93,676 women who participated in the observational component (...) of the Women's Health Initiative (WHI), a multiethnic longitudinal study, were used to develop a predictive algorithm based on commonly available clinical features. Selected factors that predicted hip fracture were then validated by 68,132 women who participated in the clinical trial. The model was tested in a subset of 10,750 women who had undergone dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scans for bone mass density assessment. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: The prediction of centrally adjudicated hip fracture

171. A prospective, randomised study comparing the percutaneous compression plate and the compression hip screw for the treatment of intertrochanteric fractures of the hip.

A prospective, randomised study comparing the percutaneous compression plate and the compression hip screw for the treatment of intertrochanteric fractures of the hip. Limited access surgery is thought to reduce post-operative morbidity and provide faster recovery of function. The percutaneous compression plate (PCCP) is a recently introduced device for the fixation of intertrochanteric fractures with minimal exposure. It has several potential mechanical advantages over the conventional (...) compression hip screw (CHS). Our aim in this prospective, randomised, controlled study was to compare the outcome of patients operated on using these two devices. We randomised 104 patients with intertrochanteric fractures (AO/OTA 31.A1-A2) to surgical treatment with either the PCCP or CHS and followed them for one year postoperatively. The mean operating blood loss was 161.0 ml (8 to 450) in the PCCP group and 374.0 ml (11 to 980) in the CHS group (Student's t-test, p < 0.0001). The pain score

173. Validation of a 4-item score predicting hip fracture and mortality risk among elderly women.

Validation of a 4-item score predicting hip fracture and mortality risk among elderly women. PURPOSE: One in 4 Swedish women experiences a hip fracture, an event that has high concomitant morbidity and mortality. We developed and validated a clinical predictor of fracture and mortality risk, the Fracture and Mortality (FRAMO) Index. METHODS: This was a population-based prospective cohort study with a baseline questionnaire and 2-year outcomes of hip fracture, fragility fracture, and death (...) regression analysis to study the association between the FRAMO Index and outcomes in all participants. RESULTS: The participation rate was 83% in this elderly female population (N = 1,248). The 63% of women with 0 to 1 risk factor had a 2-year hip fracture risk of 0.8% and mortality risk of 3.2%. In contrast, women with 2 to 4 risk factors had a 2-year hip fracture risk of 5.4% (odds ratio = 7.5; 95% confidence interval, 3.0-18.4) and mortality risk of 23.7% (odds ratio = 9.5; 95% confidence interval

175. Effect of New York State regulatory action on benzodiazepine prescribing and hip fracture rates.

Effect of New York State regulatory action on benzodiazepine prescribing and hip fracture rates. BACKGROUND: Medicare Part D excludes benzodiazepines from coverage, and numerous state government policies limit use of benzodiazepines. No data indicate that such policies have decreased the incidence of hip fracture. OBJECTIVE: To assess whether a statewide policy that decreased the use of benzodiazepines among elderly persons by more than 50% has decreased the incidence of hip fracture. DESIGN: A (...) quasi-experiment comparing changes in outcomes before and after a policy change in a study U.S. state (New York) and a control state (New Jersey). SETTING: Two U.S. state Medicaid programs, 1988-1990. PATIENTS: Medicaid enrollees in New York (n = 51 529) and New Jersey (n = 42 029) who received or did not receive a benzodiazepine. MEASUREMENTS: Benzodiazepine prescribing and hazard ratios for hip fracture, adjusted for age and eligibility category. INTERVENTION: A statewide policy, implemented
