- Prediction of postoperative morbidity, mortality and rehabilitation in hip fracture patients: the cumulated ambulation scoreNicolai B Foss
Department of Anaesthesiology, Hvidovre University Hospital, Copenhagen DK 2650, Denmark
Clin Rehabil 20:701-8. 2006..To validate the cumulated ambulation score as an early postoperative predictor of short-term outcome in hip fracture patients...
- The effects of liberal versus restrictive transfusion thresholds on ambulation after hip fracture surgeryNicolai B Foss
Department of Anesthesia, Hvidovre University Hospital, Denmark
Transfusion 49:227-34. 2009..Perioperative anemia leads to increased morbidity and mortality and potentially inhibits rehabilitation after hip fracture surgery. As such, the optimum transfusion threshold after hip fracture surgery is unknown...
- Impact of surgical complications on length of stay after hip fracture surgeryNicolai B Foss
Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Hvidovre University Hospital, Denmark
Injury 38:780-4. 2007..Data suggest that surgical complications requiring reoperation may lead to an excessively long in-patient stays. However, the overall impact of surgical complications has not been examined in detail...
