Table 6 Risk of post-operative complications (multivariable-adjusted) as a function of time-to-surgery

From: The effect of time-to-surgery on outcome in elderly patients with proximal femoral fractures

Post-operative complication Time from fracture to surgeryA OR (95% CI); p-value
Pulmonary embolism/thrombosis 1.72 (0.85–3.50); p = 0.133
Cardiovascular 1.13 (0.87–1.48); p = 0.369
Pneumonia 1.16 (0.85–1.58); p = 0.365
Implant 0.91 (0.66–1.26); p = 0.562
Vascular injury 0.24 (0.03–1.80); p = 0.165
Bleeding 0.75 (0.59–0.97); p = 0.026
Bed sores 1.33 (0.86–2.05); p = 0.201
