Controversies exist about the change in hip fracture incidence among countries. In France, over the last 6 years, the incidence in people aged 40 years and over of hip fractures decreased in women over 39 years and increased in men; a decrease in the incidence was observed in both genders in the elderly.
Controversies exist about the change in hip fracture incidence among countries. The aim of this study was to assess the incidence of hip fractures in men and women aged 40 years and over between 2002 and 2008 in France.
Data were drawn from the French Hospital National Database. The absolute number of admissions was described and the incidence rates per 1,000,000 adjusted on age (40–59, 60–74; 74–84, and ≥85 years), and gender was calculated using the data of the French population.
The number of hip fractures increased in men (+13%; from 14,736 in 2002 to 16,611 in 2008) and remained stable in women (+0.2%, 50,910 in 2008). Between 2002 and 2008, the French population increased by 9% in both genders. Incidence over 39 years decreased by 8% in women (3,356 and 3,093 per million in 2002 and 2008, respectively) and increased by 4% in men (1,131 and 1,172 per millions in 2002 and 2008, respectively). An age-specific incidence decrease was found, in particular, in the elderly in both genders (74–84 and ≥85 years), most importantly in women.
Over the last 6 years, the incidence of hip fractures decreased in women aged over 39 years and increased in men aged over 39 years; a decrease in the incidence of these fractures was observed in both genders in the elderly. Such epidemiological data may help policy making, planning resource allocation, and setting up complementary health decisions for the management of osteoporosis.
