Interventional - Procedure
The HIP ATTACK-2 trial is a multicentre, international, parallel group randomized controlled trial to determine whether accelerated surgery for hip fracture in patients with acute myocardial injury is superior to standard care in reducing death at 90 days after randomization.
The trial will also assess secondary outcomes at 90 days after randomization:
