What symptoms and disabilities are important to articular cartilage repair patients? - survey update
In June 2007 the KNEEguru website started a survey looking at 'What symptoms and disabilities are important to articular cartilage repair patients?'. The first 58 responses from the survey were anonymously collated, analysed and submitted as a clinical article to the American Journal of Sports Medicine. Earlier this month the authors received confirmation that the paper has been accepted for publication in a forthcoming issue of the American Journal of Sports Medicine.
The feedback from one of the reviewers was ....
This is a very interesting and clinically relevant study that can potentially help researchers and clinicians to select a more appropriate instrument for patient-based outcome measures in patients with articular cartilages repair surgeries.
A link to the abstract for the publication will be posted on the Survey Reports section of the KNEEguru Information Hub once the article has gone to press.
This survey will be staying open for the foreseeable future so that more responses can be collected with a view to gaining a more in depth insight into what symptoms are important to articular cartilage repair patients.
