General Anesthesia Versus Regional Anesthesia in Mortality and Delirium of Elderly Hip Fracture Patients: A Nationwide Population-Based Study

Introduction

§Elderly hip fracture: continuous increase with an aging population, serious socioeconomic burden and a challenge for public health care managements
§Delirium: up to 46% prevalence in elderly hip fracture and associated increased rate of cognitive decline, institutionalization, and mortality
