Abstract: Hip fractures (HF) are very common fractures and their frequency is increasing with time. They represent a social and economic problem worldwide. Approximately 330 000 hip fractures occur yearly in the United States [1]. This number is expected to range from 458,000 to 1,037,000 by 2050 [2].Hip fractures are divided into 3 types: femoral neck, intertrochanteric and subtrochanteric fractures. Fractures of the femoral head, of the acetabulum and pelvic fractures are not included in this review (Figure 1).
