Therefore, the aim of our study was to use nationwide population-based data from Taiwan's National Health Insurance Research Database (NHIRD) to compare mortality rates after fragility-related hip fractures among geriatric patients on dialysis with a comparable patient population not on dialysis.
The secondary aim was to determine the distribution of hip fracture sites between these 2 patient groups and to evaluate the prognosis for trochanteric and femoral neck fractures in both groups.
The prevalence of these 2 types of fractures is similar in the general population, with a better survival rate reported for femoral neck fractures.
However, a clear distribution of hip fracture sites among patients receiving dialysis is yet to be determined using a large population-based cohort.
Furthermore, how the hip fracture site influences the mortality rate of patients on dialysis has not been specifically evaluated.
The NHIRD is a large database derived from this system and includes a number of datasets, such as the Inpatients Expenditures Dataset, the Catastrophic Illness Dataset, and the Accident Dataset.
The system uses International Classification of Disease Clinical Modification, 9th revision (ICD-9-CM) codes to classify diseases.
