Hip osteoarthritis as a predictor of the fracture pattern in proximal femur fractures IntroductionSeveral authors have suggested a correlation between the fracture patterns of proximal femur fractures and the degree of hip osteoarthritis (HOA), but the current evidence to support this are insufficient. The aim of our study was to demonstrate whether there is an association between the grade of HOA and fracture pattern observed, in patients presenting with a fragility fracture of the proximal femur. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Injury Elsevier

Abstract

IntroductionSeveral authors have suggested a correlation between the fracture patterns of proximal femur fractures and the degree of hip osteoarthritis (HOA), but the current evidence to support this are insufficient. The aim of our study was to demonstrate whether there is an association between the grade of HOA and fracture pattern observed, in patients presenting with a fragility fracture of the proximal femur.
