Objective: To determine the incidence of hospital readmission in a geriatric hip fracture population within 90 days.Methods: Analysis of patients aged ≥60 years presenting with a fragility fracture of the hip from a prospective geriatric hip fracture program registry was performed. Demographics, diagnoses, treatments, complications, hospital events, and readmission for any cause within 30 and 90 days were collected. Read More

Objective: Vital signs and laboratory values are used to guide decisions to use damage control techniques in lieu of early definitive fracture fixation. Prior models attempted to predict mortality risk but have limited utility. There is a need for a dynamic model that captures evolving physiologic changes during a trauma patient's hospital course.

The use of low-profile dorsal and volar locking plates for distal radial fracture surgery has improved results and lowered the complication rate compared with older plate designs. The purpose of the present randomized controlled trial was to compare patient-reported outcomes as well as radiographic and functional results between patients who underwent stabilization with a volar locking plate or a dorsal locking nail-plate for the treatment of dorsally displaced unstable extra-articular distal radial fractures.Methods: One hundred and twenty patients ≥55 years of age were randomized to surgery with either a volar locking plate or a dorsal locking nail-plate and were assessed at 2 weeks, 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months, and 1 year.
