Abstract

BACKGROUND: Hip fractures in the orthogeriatric population are a health problem that causes mortality and morbidity, with an increasing frequency. The present study aims to investigate whether the preoperative neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is a predictive value for the postoperative mortality risk in patients who underwent only proximal femoral nail (PFN) surgery due to pertrochanteric fractures (PTF). To our knowledge, there is not any study conducted with a similar population in the litertaure.
