Risk of mortality in individuals with hip fracture and traumatic brain injury.
Researchers estimated the prevalence of TBI (traumatic brain injury) with individuals hospitalized with hip fracture and their all-cause mortality. The population studied were Medicare beneficiaries aged 65 and older from 2006 to 2010. They concluded that there was a higher risk of death with individuals who had TBI than those who had only a hip fracture.

Rates of intentionally caused and road crash deaths of US citizens abroad.
The researchers invetigated rates of death by cause and country among US travellers to aid in the development of risk reduction strategies. Using data from January 2003 to December 2009 from the US Department of State's Bureau of Consular Affairs and from the US Department of Commerce's Office of Travel and Tourism, they found that the leading cause of non-natural deaths in US travellers abroad was road crashes, which exceeds intentional injury as the leading cause of non-natural deaths in almost every country where US citizens travel.
