|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Hip Fractures||Other: Ultrasound assessment of gastric contents|
In the patients who has femur fracture, they are immobilized because of the pain. This condition makes the gastric movement slow, and the pain also contributes to delayed digestion.
In the present study, the gastric content is assessed by using ultrasonography in fasted elderly patients for hip fracture surgery. Ultrasound assessment is performed in the supine position. All patients scheduled elective surgery for hip fracture over 65 years old are objects. The primary outcome is the number of patients with not empty stomach and full stomach, and the secondary outcome is the component of residual gastric contents.

Hip fracture patients
Fasted elderly patients scheduled for hip fracture surgery except exclusion criteria are enrolled.
Other: Ultrasound assessment of gastric contents
Ultrasound assessment of gastric contents is performed in fasted elderly patients for hip fracture surgery.
- Ultrasound assessment of the presence of gastric contents. [ Time Frame: Before the induction of anesthesia (Baseline) ]The presence of of gastric contents is assessed by using ultrasonography; yes/no
- Ultrasound assessment of the component of residual gastric contents [ Time Frame: Before the induction of anesthesia (Baseline) ]The component of residual gastric contents is assessed by using ultrasonography; empty, clear fluid, solid content
