Fast-Track in proximal femur fractures: clinical and instrumental assessment of the geriatric patient

Abstract

The increase in average population age and, consequently, in fragility fractures demands an innovative approach to the emerging challenges. A new system of clinical evaluation of the geriatric patient with femoral fracture is presented: multidisciplinary and inspired by the principles of orthogeriatrics, aimed at personalising and optimising the treatment of this serious disease.
