Description of registry

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).

Population

Ages in the registry

Total volume of registry

According to data from the Swedish Board of Health and Welfare, there are about 140,000 fractures a year among adults.
