Abstract
We examined the physical and social function of patients surviving 10 years after internal fixation of a hip fracture. 74 out of 362 patients were alive 10 years after their fracture. In 47 survivors after cervical fracture, secondary hip arthroplasties had been performed in 25, and nails had been extracted in 13. The implants had been removed in 8 of 27 with trochanteric fracture. 58 survivors were interviewed; three fourths were still living in their own homes, with more than half needing no home assistance. However, limitation of activities, caused by the fracture, was experienced by more than one third of the survivors.
