|Osteoporotic Fractures Femoral Neck Fracture||Drug: Risedronate||Phase 4|
Femoral neck fracture in the elderly is one indication for initiating osteoporosis treatment. Bisphosphonates remain the first line therapy; however, many orthopaedic surgeons concern regarding their effects on fracture healing process. Therefore, therapy is usually delayed for a period of time. To the best of our knowledge, there is no scientific data to support whether bisphosphonate treatment should be given immediately after the surgery or it should be delayed.
This study aims to compare functional recovery between early- and late administration of bisphosphonate in patients who received hemiarthroplasty following femoral neck fractures.

|Official Title:||A Comparative Study of Short-term Functional Recovery Between Early- and Late Bisphosphonate Treatment Following Hemiarthroplasty in Patients With Osteoporotic Femoral Neck Fractures|
|Study Start Date :||June 2013|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||October 2017|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||October 2017|
Active Comparator: Early bisphosphonate use
Give risedronate (actonel) at 2 weeks after hemiarthroplasty for an osteoporotic femoral neck fracture. In addition, calcium and vitamin D supplementation will be given to all patients.
Risedronate (35 mg) 1 tablet orally once a week
Take risedronate 35 mg orally every week
Other Name: Actonel
No Intervention: Late bisphosphonate use
Give only calcium and vitamin D supplementation during the first 3 months after the surgery.
Bisphosphonate, risedronate (Actonel), will be given at 3 months after surgery for an osteoporotic femoral neck fracture.
