Results suggest that ankle fractures in the 65+ age group are associated with decreased mortality rate i the next year as opposed to hip fractures in the same age group. A more aggresive approach should always be considered under the assumption that the patient is more active than not. But need to consider on a case by case basis weighting in in any co-morbidities.
This is a blog related to foot and ankle news and articles. I will be posting new articles I found of a general interest or some import regarding the field of foot and ankle surgery. I hope that it will be an open forum for discussion as well.
