Resumen

PEREZ RIVERA, Orlando Manuel; PALANCO DOMINGUEZ, Lourdes E  y  SANTANA NOVOA, Luis A. Morbidity and mortality from hip fractures during 2001-2005. Rev Cubana Ortop Traumatol [online]. 2007, vol.21, n.2. ISSN 0864-215X.

A descriptive and retrospective study was conducted among 508 patients over 15 with a diagnosis of hip fracture admitted in "Celia Sánchez Manduley" Clinical and Surgical Teaching Hospital of Manzanillo from December 2002 to December 2005. The incidence on real morbidity and mortality in the Cuban environment was made known, and the behaviour of the admission-emergency surgery ratio was assessed, as well as the main postsurgical complications observed in the geriatric patients. The most affected group was that of white females aged 81-90. The trochanteric mass fracture prevailed with 341 patients. Osteosynthesis was performed in 85.9 % of the operated on, with AO angular plate of 130o (63.9 %). In the case of the fractures of the femoral neck (167) osteosynthesis was preferred. 82.9 % of the operations carried out were emergency operations. The respiratory and metabolic complications were the most frequent. 4.1 % of the patients died.

Palabras clave : Hip; morbidity; mortality; osteosynthesis.
