Changing trends in the epidemiology of hip fracture in Spain

Osteoporos Int (2014) 25:1267–1274. DOI 10.1007/s00198-013-2586-0.

Conclusions This study supports other international studies by showing changes in the incidence of hip fractures after age population adjustment, which denotes a decrease in the younger age groups and among women and shows an increase in both groups over 85 years. The increase in the crude incidence rate of hip fracture in Spain reflects changes in population structure.
