Practical research methods for orthopaedic surgeons.
TLDR
It is helpful for orthopaedic surgeons to review different study designs and their levels of evidence, to understand statistical jargon and the selection of the statistical test that is appropriate for given types of data, and to be familiar with the process of sample size calculations. Expand
Outcome instruments for the assessment of the upper extremity following trauma: a review.
TLDR
Until research is published outlining the evaluation of assessment instruments in upper extremity orthopaedic populations, authors will need to conduct their own validation studies before investigating outcomes in specific trauma populations. Expand
Iris colour, ethnic origin and progression of age‐related macular degeneration
TLDR
The objective is to investigate the relationship between iris colour, ethnic origin and the progression of age‐related macular degeneration (AMD) in patients with Alzheimer's disease. Expand
Choosing outcome assessment instruments for trauma registries.
TLDR
The use of previously recommended outcome assessment instruments is discussed, with a focus on the utility of these instruments for use in routine monitoring of trauma outcomes other than mortality through trauma registries. Expand
Fracture fixation in the operative management of hip fractures (FAITH): an international, multicentre, randomised controlled trial
TLDR
In terms of reoperation rates the sliding hip screw shows no advantage, but some groups of patients (smokers and those with displaced or base of neck fractures) might do better with a sliding hip Screw than with cancellous screws. Expand
Clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction following total joint replacement in haemophilia – 23‐year experience in knees, hips and elbows
TLDR
This study confirms previous knowledge on the role of total joint arthroplasty in haemophilic arthropathy and confirms high complication rates and modest functional outcomes, the operations are valuable for achieving pain relief and patients find that risks are outweighed by the benefits. Expand
Nutritional Status and Short-Term Outcome of Hip Arthroplasty
TLDR
The rate of malnourishment was significantly higher in patients having trauma-related surgery than in those having elective surgery, and preoperative nutritional assessment may be useful in predicting patients at high surgical risk. Expand
Outcomes of isolated tibial shaft fractures treated at level 1 trauma centres.
TLDR
It is indicated that long-term physical disability remains a problem for many patients following tibial shaft fracture, and they should be considered when providing prognostic information to patients. Expand
Methodology of the Cardiovascular Health and Age-Related Maculopathy (CHARM) Study
TLDR
The present paper outlines the primary aims of the CHARM study, the methodology involved and the recruitment results, and identifies the traditional and novel risk factors for CVD. Expand
Post-operative numbness and patient satisfaction following plate fixation of clavicular fractures.
TLDR
Vertical incisions for plate fixation of clavicular shaft fractures may be associated with reduced post-operative numbness and avoid some cases of patient dissatisfaction, and surgeons should consider using this approach in plate fixation in clavicle fractures. Expand
