Table 1 Baseline demographics and rates of early complications in patients with hip fractures

From: Combination of measures of handgrip strength and red cell distribution width can predict in-hospital complications better than the ASA grade after hip fracture surgery in the elderly

Variable Total (N = 83) Grade 1 (N = 27) Grade 2 (N = 40) Grade 3 (N = 15) Grade 4 (N = 1)

RDW (%) 14.3 (1.6) 13.8 (1.0) 14.3 (1.6) 14.8 (1.8) 19.6
Grip strength (kg) 37.0 (18.0) 40.2 (17.1) 30.4 (19.1) 29.8 (11.5) 18.8
ICU care (%) 52.9 44.4 47.6 80 100
