Intracapsular hip fracture and the region-specific loss of cortical bone: analysis by peripheral quantitative computed tomography.

Abstract:

Generalized bone loss within the femoral neck accounts for only 15% of the increase in intracapsular hip fracture risk between the ages of 60 and 80 years. Conventional histology has shown that there is no difference in cancellous bone area between cases of intracapsular fracture and age and sex-matched controls. Rather, a loss of cortical bone thickness and increased porosity is the key feature with the greatest change occurring in those regions maximally loaded during a fall (the inferoante...
