Hip fracture is independently associated with increased risk of developing stroke. In addition, the risk of stroke following incidence of hip fracture is more prominent in younger patients, men, those with cardiovascular comor- bidities, and in patients using specific medication, such as diuretics and ABRs. Given the subsequent higher risk of stroke among patients with hip fracture, our study results indicate that physicians should be proactive to prevent strokes.
