IRB No. 08-207-2 (Dr. Robert Arciero, PI): Multi-Center ACL Revision Study (MARS)
This is a multi-center, prospective, longitudinal, outcomes study with an invisted cohort group of participants undergoing ACL revisions, elective, standard of care (SOC) orthopedic knee surgery. Predictors of outcomes (QOL and premature osteoarthritis) have yet to be determined. The American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine have set up, this multi-center evidenced based registry to recruit approximately 1,200 participants who will be followed out for 2-3 years.
IRB No. 17-014-3 (Dr. Robert Arciero, PI): Mid- and Long-Term Outcomes for Patients Treated with High Tibial Osteotomy
This study will examine the outcomes of patients who underwent a high tibial osteotomy (HTO, or realignment of the knee by cutting the tibia) performed by Dr. Robert A. Arciero at least two years ago for multiple indications. A survey will be used to collect postoperative outcome information from patients regarding current pain, satisfaction and functional outcomes. A chart review will be conducted to collect information regarding demographics, preoperative clinical factors, radiographs and the HTO procedure. Preoperative, operative and postoperative factors will be examined to determine which factors relate to positive outcomes.
IRB No. 17-066-3 (Dr. Augustus Mazzocca, PI): Factors Influencing Successful Non-operative Management of Patients with Acromioclavicular Joint Dislocations
This study will examine the outcomes of patients who had an acromioclavicular (AC) joint dislocation at least two years ago and were initially treated without surgery by Dr. Augustus Mazzocca. A survey will be used to collect updated post-treatment outcome information from patients regarding the current condition, symptoms and functioning of the injured shoulder. A chart review will be conducted to collect demographic and clinical information including injury, treatment and, where applicable, intra-operative details. Retrospective and prospective data will be examined to determine the factors associated with positive outcomes.
IRB No. 17-070-1 (Dr. Robert Arciero, PI): Mid and Long Term Outcomes of Anterior Shoulder Instability after Arthroscopic Stabilization
The purpose of this study is to assess outcomes at 5 years or more in patients who have undergone an arthroscopic stabilization for symptomatic unidirectional anterior shoulder instability. A survey will be used to collect updated postoperative outcome information from patients regarding current pain, satisfaction and functional outcomes. A chart review will be conducted to collect demographic, injury and perioperative details. These factors will be combined to examine correlations with outcomes.
IRB No. 17-124-3 (Dr. Robert Arciero, PI): Mid and Long-Term Outcomes for Patients Treated with Distal Femoral Osteotomy
This study will examine the outcomes of patients who underwent distal femoral osteotomy surgery performed by Robert A. Arciero, MD and Thomas M. DeBerardino, MD at least two years ago. This knowledge may help to improve the treatment and outcomes of future patients who experience knee malalignment. A survey will be used to collect postoperative outcome information regarding current pain, satisfaction and functional outcomes. A chart review will be conducted to collect information regarding demographics, preoperative clinical factors, radiographs and the DFO procedure. Preoperative, operative and postoperative factors will be examined to determine which factors relate to positive outcomes.
