|Official Title:||Assessment of the Risk of Contralateral Non Simultaneous Neck of Femur Fracture in the Elderly. CT Based Study.|
|Study Start Date :||January 2016|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||October 2018|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||October 2020|
Experimental: CAT scan
A CAT scan will be done for all participants. The scan will include the pelvis and 2 femurs.
Other: CAT scan (CT scan)
all patients will pass a CAT scan of ths pelvis and the 2 femurs. No other interventions are required.
- The risk of a contralateral neck of femur fracture [ Time Frame: 5 years ]A patient specific analysis based on CT scan and finite element analysis will be done on both neck of femurs.
- 3 dimensional charataristics of the neck of femur fracture [ Time Frame: 1 year ]The CAT scan will provide 3 dimensional characteristics of the current neck of femur fracture as well as the predicted one in the contralateral femur. The fracture will be described using orthopaedic classifications, such as: garden classification for neck of femur fractures and AO classification for intertrochanteric fractures of the femur.
