The Role of Patient Expectations in Traumatic Orthopedic Outcomes-TEFTOM EURASIA

2014-07-23 21:08:55 | BioPortfolio



Prediction trial, up to 10 sites in Asia and Europe


To better understand the "success" or "failure" after orthopedic trauma surgery by developing a model that can be applied clinically as a user-friendly "baseline" questionnaire - capable of predicting "success" or "failure" based on a patient's pre-surgical expectations of their final outcome and to validate a novel outcomes measure (TOM).

Primary aim:

To assess the psychometric properties of predictive validity, internal consistency and reproducibility of the trauma expectation factor (TEF) in the Eurasian population.

Secondary aim:

To assess the psychometric properties of criterion validity, internal consistency,reproducibility, and sensitivity to change of the TOM in the Eurasian population.

Key questions related to patient and surgeon expectations:

- How different, or similar, are patient and surgeon expectations?

- Do expectations change over time?

- Do patient expectations predict outcomes in validated measures use today?

The proprioception of the knee joint following tibia plateau fractures.

Proprioception is a conscious and/or unconscious perception of position change in an extremity or joint in space. In our study our purpose was to evaluate whether the lower extremity proprioception in...

Effect of intramedullary nail compression amount on the union process of tibial shaft fracture and the evaluation of this effect with a different parameter.

This study aims to investigate the effects of different amounts of compression used in intramedullary nailing on the stress values of the fracture surface and time of the union process in tibia diaphy...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Implantable fracture fixation devices attached to bone fragments with screws to bridge the fracture gap and shield the fracture site from stress as bone heals. (UMDNS, 1999)

Fracture in the proximal half of the shaft of the ulna, with dislocation of the head of the radius.

The use of metallic devices inserted into or through bone to hold a fracture in a set position and alignment while it heals.

Fracture of the lower end of the radius in which the lower fragment is displaced posteriorly.

The use of internal devices (metal plates, nails, rods, etc.) to hold the position of a fracture in proper alignment.
