Incidence of hip fracture over a 10-year period (1991-2000): reversal of a secular trend

Published in Bone. 2007, vol. 40, no. 5, p. 1284-9
Abstract Hip fractures are a major cause of burden associated with osteoporosis in terms of mortality, disability, and costs. With the ageing of the population, a marked increase in the number of fractures is expected. Furthermore, many studies reveal an increase of the age-adjusted hip fracture incidence. We specifically examined secular changes in the incidence of hip fracture in women and men aged 50 years and over in the well-defined area of Geneva, Switzerland.
