Tibial Fractures clinical trials at University of California Health

2 research studies open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Early Weight Bearing on Rehabilitation Outcomes in Patients With Traumatic Ankle and Tibial Plateau Fractures

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The overall objective of this study is to compare outcomes following early versus delayed weight bearing for adult patients operatively treated for an ankle fracture without syndesmotic fixation. Additionally, early weight bearing will be tested in patients with unicondylar plateau fractures that do not involve joint impaction in the context of a pilot study.

  • Case Series: TRUMATCH Graft Cage for Segmental Long Bone Defects

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This project consists of a prospective case design. Study candidates will include all patients ages 18 and over who were evaluated at UCSD and found to have a critical-sized humerus, femur, or tibia segmental defect that would be fixed through surgery. Patients who consent to study participation will receive the TRUMATCH Graft Cage for their long bone segmental defect repair. Data on healing rates, complication rates, re-operation rates, time to return to normal activity, and pain levels will be collected for each participation. After 3 years of data collection, we will analyze this data to provide further insight on the utility of the TRUMATCH Graft Cage. Given the significant difficulty with repairing segmental long bone defects, it is imperative to evaluate novel systems to appropriately manage these injuries.
