Changing Practice Patterns: The Impact of a Randomized Clinical Trial on Surgeons Preference for Treatment of Type 3 Supracondylar Humerus Fractures
Journal of Pediatric Orthopaedics , 05/16/2012
Mahan ST et al. – Data showing change in surgeon practice have been relatively sparse. In this group of surgeons who participated in an randomized clinical trial (RCT), there was a statistically significant change in pin configuration for treatment of Gartland type 3 supracondylar humerus fractures (SCHF) after the results of the RCT were known. The change in clinical practice did not have an effect on outcomes.
