Survey Close Date: May 1, 2017
Survey Author: Randall Drew Madison MD, Stephen Kottmeier MD, Paul Tornetta III MD
Description: Our concern is that orthopedic surgeons are not well versed with regard to the finer aspects of radiation personal protective equipment. This survey aims to find out what surgeons know and to find out what limitations there may be in their knowledge. Target Audience: all OTA members.
Survey Title: Wound closure methods in ankle fracture surgery
Survey Close Date: September 30, 2017
Survey Author: Peter Krause, MD and Jack McKay, MD
Description: The results of this survey will give us an idea of the relative usage of wound closure techniques. This survey could potentially suggest which methods of closure are preferred, possibly because they are quicker or produce fewer wound complications. Target Audience: all domestic members.
Survey Close Date: July 31, 2017
Survey Author: Russell Goode MD, Brett Crist MD, James Cook DVM, PhD
Description: Given the significant amount of information MRI provides in terms of ligamentous injuries and their profound effect on knee stability, we propose a retrospective evaluation comparing MRI to CT scans and their role in preoperative planning, classification and identification of associated injuries.
Survey Title: Orthopaedic Surgeons’ Perspectives on Gun Violence
Survey Close Date: February 28, 2017
Survey Author: Stephen Iacono, BS/MPH; Daniel Elkin, MD; Mark Adams, MD; Mark Reilly, MD; Michael Sirkin, MD
Description: This survey aims to capture the opinions of orthopaedic surgeons about the issues surrounding gun violence in the United States. While the evaluation and treatment of gun shot injuries has been extensively studied, there is little information about how orthopaedic surgeons perceive this societal matter. We believe that the information garnered from this query will help guide future discussion about gun violence and the potential role that orthopaedic surgeons should play in advocacy on a regional and national level. Target audience: domestic members.
