The incidence of hip fracture in Malaysia is about 90/100 000 population and commoner in women.1 Mortality rate within six months after femoral neck fracture is reported at about 11-23% and 22-29% at one-year worldwide. Therefore, we evaluate all the neck of femur fracture patients who were admitted for surgery to create a greater understanding of peri-operative risk and possible correlation to post-operative prognosis.
