Abstract

CoVID-19 (Coronavirus disease) is a worldwide infection which is causing millions of deaths. A significant number of elderly patients require hospitalization and develop serious and sometimes life-threatening complications. The aim of this study is to evaluate the preliminary impact (8 weeks) of CoVID-19, focusing on proximal femur fractures, analyzing data and results compared to the same period of 2019.
Proximal femur fractures in COVID-19 emergency: the experience of two Orthopedics and Traumatology Departments in the first eight weeks of the Italian epidemic / Maniscalco, Pietro; Poggiali, Erika; Quattrini, Fabrizio; Ciatti, Corrado; Magnacavallo, Andrea; Vercelli, Andrea; Domenichini, Marco; Vaienti, Enrico; Pogliacomi, Francesco; Ceccarelli, Francesco. - In: ACTA BIOMEDICA. - ISSN 2531-6745. - 91:2(2020), pp. 89-96.
