Incidence of Hip Fractures and Replacements for the USA 2016-2026
Hip fractures are defined as a break in the upper quarter of the femur. The extent and exact location of the damage determines the resulting treatment.
Hip fractures most commonly occur in those with low bone mineral density (BMD). While hip fractures can occur at any age, they are most common in those of older age (> 65 years) due to osteoporosis – the most common cause of low BMD.
This report provides the current incidence for Hip Fractures across the USA split by gender and 5-year age cohort. Along with the current incidence, the report also contains an overview of the risk factors for Hip Fractures, diagnosis and prognosis along with specific variations by geography and ethnicity.
Providing a value-added level of insight from the analysis team at Black Swan, several of the main surgical treatments and co-morbidities of Hip Fracture’s have been quantified and presented alongside the overall incidence figures. These sub-populations within the main condition are also included across the 10-year forecast snapshot.
Main symptoms and co-morbidities for Hip Fractures include:
- Osteoporosis and osteopenia
- Older age
This report is built using data and information sourced from the proprietary Epiomic patient segmentation database. To generate accurate patient population estimates, the Epiomic database utilises a combination of several world class sources that deliver the most up to date information from patient registries, clinical trials and epidemiology studies. All of the sources used to generate the data and analysis have been identified in the report.
