The purpose of this study was to determine patients' survival after undergoing an early or delayed operation. We retrospectively assessed 1849 files of patients operated for proximal femoral fracture, divided into two diagnostic groups: intracapsular (n = 640) and extracapsular (n = 1209). 1163 (63%) were treated within 48 h from hospital admission and 686 (37%) were treated >48 h afterwards.  Delayed operation in patients with intracapsular fractures was associated with a 1.8-fold excess risk for 1-year mortality (HR = 1.83, P = 0.008), while no effect was observed for patients with extracapsular fractures. Males had a higher HR for mortality in both diagnostic groups. Early surgical intervention is beneficial for intra-capsular femoral fractures; male gender and a high ASA score are associated with an increased mortality hazard risk.
