We studied prospectively the change over ten years in mortality, walking ability and place of residence after a hip fracture in 753 patients in Japan. We compared the deaths observed in these patients with those expected in the general population, matched for age, gender and calender year at the time of fracture. The survival rate decreased dramatically for two years after the event and the mortality risk remained higher for ten years. This risk was approximately double that of the general population, even at ten years after fracture. The risk was higher, and remained so for longer, in younger rather than in older patients.

The proportion of patients who were able to walk outdoors alone, with or without an assistive device, was 68% (514) before fracture. This decreased to 56% (340) by one year after and remained stable at approximately 63% (125) until ten years. The proportion of patients living in their own home was 84% (629) before fracture, 81% (491) one year later, and then remained stable at approximately 86% (171) until ten years after the event.
