Fractures of the proximal femur constitute a major public health problem, with an annual incidence in Spain of 7.6 cases per 1000 inhabitants over 65 years of age. Between May 2010 and December 2016, 33 (median age, 86 years-old) of the 2625 hip fractures were classified as simultaneous extra- and intra-capsular ipsilateral fractures. CONCLUSION: The incidence of concomitant ipsilateral extra- and intra-capsularfractures of the proximal femur must be taken into account in patients over 65 years of age.
