Fracture of the upper extremity of the femur is a condition whose frequency increases with age. It is a serious disease, with multiple consequences such as a decrease in life expectancy, quality of life and patient autonomy. In this observational study, the investigators wish to evaluate the evolution of the autonomy of very elderly patients operated on for an upper extremity femur fracture as a function of early post-operative anemia.
