The objective of the Swedish Fracture Registry is to increase knowledge on the outcome of fracture treatment, both surgical and non-surgical, in Sweden. Through more detailed knowledge on the results of fracture treatment, the quality of care can be improved. The registration of both surgically and non-surgically treated fractures is an extensive and complex process that has great potential to provide answers to important questions regarding the best treatment options. Information is registered on the injury, fracture, treatment provided, and patient-reported outcome measures (PROM).
All types of fractures, including vertebra/spinal fractures in adults and long-bone fractures in children.
According to data from the Swedish Board of Health and Welfare, there are about 140,000 fractures a year among adults.
About 75 400 fractures were registered in 2018 at the included clinics (about 60 percent of orthopaedic clinics in Sweden).
Note: Variable lists are updated on a regular basis and should therefore be seen as preliminary. For the latest version, please contact the registry.
