Arthroplasty VS Internal Fixation Mortality in Elderly Hip Fractures

$79 / year

This dataset is a study of the strong evidence that supports arthroplasty for patients with hip fractures like unstable (displaced) femoral neck instead of internal fixation.

Complexity

These studies reported better outcomes for patients in whom internal fixation was avoided as the treatment of choice. A decreased rate of reoperation among patients treated with arthroplasty was the most consistent finding across the studies.

A meta-analysis on patients treated with hemiarthroplasty demonstrated no statistically significant difference in mortality. The benefit of implementing this recommendation will be the avoidance of reoperations in this frail patient population.
