Epidemiological aspects of fracture of the olecranon

Epidemiological aspects of fracture of the olecranon

Ugeskrift for Laeger 150(4): 226-228

In a material consisting of 140 patients with unilateral fracture of the olecranon, we found an epidemiological profile which showed a close relationship with other more frequently occurring fractures of osteoporotic origin. Characteristically, we found an increasing risk of fracture with age for both sexes and also an increasing incidence of fracture comminution in the older age groups. Elderly women were most frequently affected particularly during the cold months of the year. In the younger age groups, the simple type of fracture dominated and falls from bicycles were the dominating cause of injury.
