Introduction: Falls among elderly represent an important public health concern due to its high incidence, health implications, and medical care costs. The study aims to assess the association between dementia and bone fracture risk after falls among the elderly. Methods: A case-control of 404 subjects aged 60 years old or more living in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, was carried out. Cases and controls were matched by age, sex, and hospital. Data were collected using structured interviews.
