Abstract

Hip fractures have high morbidity and mortality rate for the people as a complication of osteoporosis and is generally seen in old age. It is known that femoral geometric measurements are important in the assessment of hip fracture risks. This study aimed to examine the association between hip geometry and hip fracture in post-menopausal elderly females.
