SummaryThree modifiable factors of fall direction, poor bone strength, and depression were associated with an increased risk of hip fractures for elderly men and women; fall direction was a much stronger predictor than the other two. When a fall occurs, changing fall direction may be most effective to prevent hip fractures.IntroductionA matched case-control study was conducted to identify risk factors for hip fractures in elderly men and women in Taiwan.MethodsCases were defined as persons who… Expand
