Abstract:

Objectives: This study aimed to examine the incidence of distal radius fractures in patients aged ۵۵ and above who had also experienced hip fractures. Osteoporosis-associated fractures, particularly hip fractures, are common and serious in older individuals with reduced bone density. Previous research has suggested a relationship between hip fractures and distal radius fractur es.Methods: The study included patients over ۵۵ years old who had presented with hip fractures at Akhtar Hospital in the past five years. Patients with a history of hip fractures more than five years before experiencing the distal radius fracture were excluded. Personal information was extracted from medical records, and the collected data were analyzed in SPSS software using statistical methods, such as t-tests and paired t-tests.Results: This study involved ۱,۷۴۵ patients with hip fractures and ۱۸۳ individuals without fractures. The average age of the patients was ۷۵.۸±۱۰.۴ years old, with the majority being female (۵۹.۶%). Among the hip fractures, ۵۹.۶%, ۳۴.۵%, and ۵.۹% were intertrochanteric fractures, neck of femur fractures, and subtrochanteric fractures, respectively. Overall, ۱۵.۸% of individuals with hip fractures also had distal radius fractures. The average age and gender distribution of the patients were similar in both groups, with no significant difference. However, the prevalence of distal radius fractures was significantly higher in the hip fracture group, compared to the control group.Conclusion: It was found that individuals over the age of ۵۵ with distal radius fractures, especially females, are more susceptible to hip fractures. Distal radius fractures have a significant impact on the occurrence of hip fractures in patients. Therefore, older individuals with osteoporosis should be cautious and avoid high-risk activities that could lead to falls and fractures. Level of evidence: III
