Pape, H-C; Bischoff-Ferrari, H A (2017). How can we influence the incidence of secondary fragility fractures? A review on current approaches. Injury:Epub ahead of print.

Abstract

With the increasing number of elderly patients presenting with fragility fractures, their care has become a focus among trauma and orthopaedic surgeons. Protocols are ever evolving to improve the clinical pathways and treatment modalities targeting a more efficient and patient centred service. In this article, current approaches and their potential to reduce mortality and re-fracture in these patients are discussed.
