Abstract

Conventional antipsychotics have been linked to an increased risk of femur fracture. Despite a lower propensity of atypical agents to cause gait and movement disorders, a correlation between these medications and the risk of femur fracture remains to be established. The aim of this study was to estimate the effect of atypical and conventional antipsychotics on the risk of hospitalization for femur fracture.
