Brief Summary:
This study aimed to identify the risk factors and complications associated with mortality in elderly patients with femoral fracture after a fall from the ground level.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Femoral Fractures Other: Survival Other: Death

Detailed Description:
This retrospective study reviewed data pertaining to elderly patients aged ≥ 65 years who were admitted into a Level I trauma center, between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2017. Multivariate logistic regression analysis was performed to identify independent effects of univariate predictive variables on the occurrence of mortality.
