Our data are derived from an observational study conducted at the “Tor Vergata” Polyclinic in Rome in patients aged 65 or older the main objectives of which were to evaluate the major indicators of frailty and to establish their relationship with changes in the endocrine system that occur with aging.35 Here we show the secondary analysis of the study to identify which indicators of frailty were most frequently present in a subgroup of patients with an acute stress such as hip fracture following low-energy trauma.

The study population comprised 112 elderly subjects, aged between 68 and 98 years, referred to “Tor Vergata” Polyclinic from March 2014 to March 2015. Of these subjects, 62 subjects were enrolled as patients hospitalized in the Orthopedic Department following hip fracture, representing a population with higher frailty prevalence, and 50 subjects were enrolled as outpatients evaluated at the Department of Internal Medicine (Clinical Program on Atherosclerosis) as described in Bertoli et al.35 Patients general clinical characteristics from Table 1 in Bertoli et al35 were in part reported here in Tables 1–3 to facilitate the immediate comparison with new data and analysis.
