Changing trends in hip fracture incidence around the world
Date:4/12/2011

tivity, vitamin D insufficiency and increasing survival of the frail elderly. However the reasons for a plateau or decrease in rates are still not clear and require further investigation.

Professor Cyrus Cooper, director of the MRC Lifecourse Epidemiology Unit at the University of Southampton and Professor of Musculoskeletal Science at the NIHR Musculoskeletal Biomedical Research Unit at the University of Oxford (UK) emphasized the importance of the review and the need for further research. "It is interesting to see that, in recent decades, the incidence rate of hip fractures have been reported to increase, plateau or decrease in different countries. There is evidently a need for further research to pinpoint the reasons for the decline in rates observed in some regions, as this may help us understand ways to reduce rates of hip fracture worldwide. Data on continuing trends in fragility fracture need to be collected and evaluated as the trends will impact on worldwide economic evaluations of the future burden of osteoporosis and its related fractures."
