ACL Reconstruction Graft Preferences

Drs. Neal ElAttrache and Eric Bowman of the Kerlan-Jobe Institute invite you to participate in a survey evaluating the current ACL reconstruction graft preferences among orthopaedic surgeons. Patients have variable knowledge about ACL injuries in the general population and the surgeon plays a critical role in helping a patient decide what type of graft to use for reconstruction. For those surgeons who have had an ACL reconstruction previously, there is added insight into the graft selection process. Thank you for helping us understand the current trends in ACL reconstruction graft choice by participating in this survey.

Current Trends in the Surgical Management of Ligamentous Syndesmosis Injuries

The Syndesmosis Study Group invites you to participate in a survey of current practices in the management of ligamentous syndesmosis injuries in athletic patients. This survey is being conducted to help us gain a better understanding of current trends in the management of ligamentous syndesmotic injuries, including surgical indications, imaging studies, preferred implants, and return to play guidelines. The results will facilitate establishment of best practices in the management of syndesmosis injuries and guide future studies. If you are a surgeon and treat ankle syndesmosis injuries as part of your practice, please complete this survey.

Management Options for Graft Tunnel Mismatch: A Survey of Experts in the Field 

Dr. Dax Varkey and Dr. James Fleischli of OrthoCarolina are interested in understanding techniques for managing graft tunnel mismatch during BTB ACL reconstruction in order to help surgeons more effectively and efficiently treat patients. The purpose of this survey is to identify the rate at which clinicians are encountering graft tunnel mismatch, establish what methods are most commonly utilized to treat this problem, and identify if clinician’s demographics correlate with their treatment algorithms. They plan to apply this information to guide future studies on the techniques used to understand their potential impact on patient outcomes.

Evaluation of Glenoid Bone Loss

Drs. Drew Lansdown and Adam Yanke from Rush University Medical Center invite you to participate in a survey on estimating glenoid bone loss in shoulder instability. There are numerous different methods that are described for estimating bone loss though it is unclear how these are used in clinical practice. The purpose of this survey is to define the current practice patterns for imaging studies and estimation method for glenoid bone loss.

Knee Arthroscopic Practices

Dr. Jonathan Gelber invites you to participate in a survey to evaluate current practices in knee arthroscopy. The current literature continues to debate meniscus repair and ACL reconstruction outcomes and therefore practices vary widely among surgeons. In addition, trends regarding equipment set-up practices have not been studied. The purpose of this survey is to identify common practices in knee arthroscopy and to evaluate if fellowship training, years in practice, or geography affect clinical practice.
