About the Book

This nested cohort study of community-dwelling persons following hip fracture, provides a description of functional changes over 6 months, and evaluates the predictive ability of postoperative baseline TUG scores on short-term functional mobility and long-term outdoor ambulation. Baseline clinical and demographic information was collected in addition to assessments of pre-fracture physical function (Lower Extremity Measure (LEM)) and a postoperative (5-7 days) Timed "Up & Go" (TUG). Multiple follow-up assessments were conducted using the LEM and the TUG. Dramatic improvements in TUG times occurred in the first 2 weeks. The majority recovered their prior level of toilet transfers and indoor walking ability in the first 2 weeks. Recovery rates for the remaining B/IADL gradually increased throughout the 6 month period. Multivariate analyses showed that pre-fracture physical function and baseline TUG were significant predictors of short-term functional mobility outcomes; and only pre-fracture physical function was a significant predictor of long-term outdoor ambulation.
