A Multicenter Retrospective Outcome Assessment of Open Reduction Internal Fixation vs. Closed Reduction Internal Fixation in Treatment of Adults with Femoral Neck Fractures
Principal Investigator: Saam Morshed, MD, PhD
The best available evidence on superiority of ORIF versus CRIF in treatment of femoral neck fractures is inconclusive. Our null hypothesis is that there are no differences in rates of reoperation and of complications between ORIF and CRIF of femoral neck fractures in adults. Given this hypothesis, we formulate the following specific aims:
Specific Aim 1: Compare the rate of reoperation following the initial ORIF versus CRIF of displaced femoral neck fractures in adults as the primary outcome.
Specific Aim 2: Test the association between measured risk factors for reoperation, including surgical approach, and complication requiring surgery after operative management of displaced femoral neck fracture.
Specific Aim 3: To determine the reliability and validity of radiographic measurements of femoral neck fracture severity and quality of reduction.
Case Report Forms
Electric Data Capture
– Data may be entered into REDCap directly without the use of a paper CRFs. To keep track of patients/subject ID, use a data key
-REDCap will generate a Subject ID when a new record is created
– Redact all patient identifiers (patient name, medical record number, hospital, etc.) from x-rays before uploading into REDCap
