Objectives: Development of a risk scoring system in order to predict the mortality rates in long and short term of the patients over 65 years old who were treated for hip fracture and proving the relation between risk scoring system and mortality rates.
Method: Mortality rates in 3rd. month, 6th. month, 12th. month, 24th. month, 36th. month and 72.nd month and relations between mortality rates and preoperative risk scores were evaluated in 92 of 152 patients over 65 years old who were treated for hip fracture between 1997-1999 in Sisli Etfal Training and Research Hospital in 2nd. Orthpaedics and Traumatology Clinic.
Results: Risk scoring system which consists of all risk factors and making clear the general conditions of the patients is a useful tool for predicting the conditions of the patiets after operation. We saw that the preoperative risk scoring system we used is reliable to predict the postoperative conditions.
