ESCOBAR-BRAVO, Miguel Ángel; JURSCHIK, Pilar; BOTIGUE, Teresa  e  NUIN, Carmen. Frailty as a predictor of mortality in a cohort of people aged 75 years and older. Gac Sanit [online]. 2014, vol.28, n.6, pp.489-491. ISSN 0213-9111.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.gaceta.2014.06.005.

Objective: To determine the association between frailty in older persons and mortality in the city of Lleida (Spain) between 2009 and 2012. Methods: We conducted a prospective longitudinal study based on persons living in the city of Lleida aged 75 years and older, covered by the public health system and living in single-family households. The cross-sectional study was performed between 2009 and 2010 and longitudinal study was carried out 3 years later (median 25 months). Results: Survival was lower in frail individuals than in pre-frail and non-frail individuals (log rank = 10.56; p = 0.005). In addition to frailty (HR = 4.95; 95%CI: 1.71-14.31). Age was also a significant predictor (HR = 2.87; 95%CI: 1.02-8.26). Conclusion: A higher level of frailty was associated with an increased risk of death at 2 years in a prospective cohort of elderly persons older than 75 years living in their own homes in the city of Lleida.
