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.
