A prospective study of 125 elderly patients (over 65 years) with proximal femoral fracture was carried out to compare pre-fracture sociomedical factors with the local and general complications following surgical treatment, in predicting mortality and length of stay. A poor pre-fracture mental state was more important than associated physical illness in predicting mortality. Pre-fracture mobility state was the most useful early prognostic predictor of length of hospitalization. Post-operativedoi:10.1136/emj.1.4.215 fatcat:2evygchzm5cfbic3u67yci3724
