Fractures of the Hip in Adults

  • Raymond G. Tronzo
Chapter

Abstract

Statistics gathered during the mid-1980s are quite different from those gathered previously because of three factors. (1) The commonplace use of the image intensifier roentgenogram with its updated memory bank has made surgical treatment of these injuries much more sophisticated with very accurate reductions and near-perfect placement of the internal fixator. (2) Stronger implants for more reliable fixation with low failure rates contributed greatly to a more favorable outcome. (3) A more optimistic attitude from the nursing sector has significantly reduced the mortality rate during the immediate postoperative period. Data collected before the late 1970s and early 1980s cannot be compared with the quality of survival in the present time frame.
