          Abstract

          In Denmark, 11,000 patients with proximal femoral fractures are admitted to hospital each year, using 2.2% of the national hospitalisation capacity. The patients are generally old and have a high degree of co-morbidities. In Denmark, the 30-day mortality rate is 10%, and on an international level, reoperation rates of 10-20% are reported. This article reports on current treatment stategies, classifications and surgical techniques and presents possible guidelines. The use of specialized centres and accelerated clinical programmes in Denmark is recommended.
