Facts & Outcomes

Functional Outcome Comparison of Non-operative Treatment and Operative Treatment of Scapular and Glenoid Fractures: A Prospective Randomized Trial 
Funded by the Orthopaedic Trauma Association
This study is a prospective randomized trial of conservative versus operative treatment interventions to compare functional outcome, clinical results, and complications of scapular and glenoid fractures.

Improving Pain Management and Long Term Outcomes Following High Energy Orthopedic Trauma (Pain/PTOA Study)
W81XWH-10-2-0090 Department of Defense and NIH
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01789216
The purpose of this study is to definitively resolve questions regarding the use of multimodal pharmacologic pain management for orthopedic trauma patients. As a significant proportion of this population develops chronic post traumatic osteoarthritis (PTOA), a sub-objective of this study is to examine the etiology and incidence of chronic pain and PTOA.

Outcomes Following Severe distal tibia, Ankle and/or Foot Trauma: Comarison of Limb Salvage VS. Transtibial Amputation Protocol (OUTLET)
W81XWH-10-2-0090 Department of Defense
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01606501
The OUTLET Study is a multicenter, prospective longitudinal observational study to evaluate outcomes among limb salvage and amputation patients.

Functional Outcomes of Patellar Tension Band Plate use in Comminuted Patellar Fractures
This study will assess the intermediate term objective and subjective outcome data of patients who underwent patella tension band plate fixation for comminuted patella fractures.

Multi-Center Outcomes Analysis of Fasciotomy Coverage Techniques of the Lower Extremity
The purpose of this multicenter study is to review and evaluate clinical outcomes of the various fasciotomy coverage techniques.

Outcome of Operative Treatment of High Energy Multiligament Knee Injuries
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the clinical and functional outcomes following acute
treatment of knee dislocations using multi-ligamentous knee reconstruction.

Outcomes following operative and conservative treatment for pediatric pelvic fractures
The purpose of this study is to:

  1. Differentiate results of surgical and nonsurgical treatment outcomes based on radiographs, nonunion, malunion, impaired growth, range of motion (ROM), pain (visual analog scale), pain medication, return to work/school/activities.
  2. Compare the indications, complications, and outcomes of pediatric pelvic fractures based upon injury pattern, quality of reduction, treatment techniques (operative versus conservative).
  3. Determine associated injuries, comorbidities, death, mechanism of injury based on fracture classifications.

Outcomes following operative and conservative treatment of pediatric talar and calcaneal fractures
The purpose of this study is to:

  1. Differentiate results of surgical and nonsurgical outcome based on radiographic alignment, arthrosis signs, malunion, non-union, avascular necrosis (AVN), impaired growth, range of motion, pain (visual analogue scale), return to school/work, shoe wear and use of pain medications.
  2. Compare indications, complications, and outcomes of pediatric talar and calcaneal fractures based upon injury pattern, quality of reduction, operative techniques as well as conservative treatments.
  3. Determine associated injuries, co-morbidities, demographics, reason for injury referred on classifications
