AbstractOf 1430 patients with proximal femoral fractures admitted into Queen Mary Hospital, Hong Kong from 1985 to 1990, 146 patients (10.2 per cent) had a history of previous cerebrovascular accidents. The fracture was on the hemiplegic side in 82 per cent of patients. Most patients were treated by operation. Intensive physiotherapy was given to these patients for an average of 6 weeks. The prefracture walking ability was regained or even improved upon discharge in 60.9 per cent of patients. After an average follow-up of 21 months, 31 per cent had satisfactory walking and active daily activities. There was significant correlation of the performance upon discharge from the hospital with the walking ability at the final follow-up.
