This observational cohort study was to evaluate the effect of continuous perioperative antiplatelet medication on the outcomes after cephalomedullary nailing (CMN) in elderly patients with a proximal femur fracture. Methods: One hundred and sixty-two consecutive patients aged ≥70 years undergoing CMN for proximal femur fracture between January 2015 and January 2017 weredoi:10.1186/s12891-019-2504-5 fatcat:jop4jansrndxnnnzoppeya2w4e
