Abstract: Introduction Treatment of older adult hip fracture patients can be challenging and requires early postoperative mobilisation to prevent complications. Simple clinical tools to predict mobilisation/weight-bearing difficulties after hip fracture surgery are scarcely available and analysis of handgrip strength could be a feasible approach. In the present study, we hypothesised that patients with reduced handgrip strength show incapability to follow postoperative weight-bearing instructions. … Show more

“…This indicator is related not only to the risk and incidence of fractures, but also to the recovery of fractured individuals [39]. Patients with higher HGS show better recovery after hip fracture, which suggests that it can be used as a screening tool to identify those who need intensive rehabilitation [42][43][44]. Such a finding may contribute to the prognosis of these patients, since hip fractures are most serious and cause permanent disability in approximately 20% of survivors, with only about 40% of the afflicted individuals eventually attaining preinjury function levels [45].…”

“…Although intramedullary nails are sometimes generalized, no definitive conclusions can be drawn for any other types besides the PFNA from this study [ 14 , 29 ]. Using different methods to assess functionality or recovery, for example using the Barthel index instead of the Katz ADL, may yield different results [ 7 , 10 ].…”

“…Thus, for example, some studies measured HGS as a continuous variable 10−12 and others as a categorical variable. [13][14][15] The Revised European Working Group on Sarcopenia (EWGSOP2) defined probable sarcopenia with a cut-off of 27 kg for men and 16 kg for women. 16 Perez-Rodriguez et al 17 used somewhat different definitions with cut-offs of 23 kg for men and 13 kg for women.…”
