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?

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.
