Update of hip fractures and their management -A review

Abdul Malik, Md. Kutubuddin and Dr. Sohrab Husain
Hip fractures are common injuries, especially seen in older people. Women are more vulnerable than men to osteoporosis; thus they are more likely to suffer from hip fracture. Femoral neck fractures in older people are associated with low-energy falls. About 1.6 million hip fractures occur annually. The patient should have had the most recent trauma in most cases. There is a 6 per cent in-house mortality rate after femoral neck fracture. Patients diagnosed with complete hip arthroplasty or hemiarthroplasty should be postoperatively accepted as being weight-bearing. In Unani System of Medicine (USM) fracturing of the bone (Azm) is called “Kasar.” Kasar (fracture) is basically an example of Tafarruq-Wa-Itteshal.
