A hip fracture occurs on the major throchanter. Most hip fractures (up to 90% of them) are related to a direct impact towards the hip. Anyone can be unfortunate enough to fall, but with elderly people, the bones are weaker and a fall will more frequently lead to a fracture. Both women and men are at risk but women are at higher risk if they or suffer from osteoporosis. 300,000 hip fractures occurs in the US per year.
