  • Clinical Trial Information

    Trial Contact: Krol, David; Harriott, Paula

    Trial Phone: 321.843.5390 ; 321.841.3867

  • IRB No: 19.184.05

    Protocol Abbrev: INFIX vs Fixation

    Principal Investigator: Frank R. Avilucea, MD

    Age Group: Adult

    Secondary Protocol No: Version 1. May 2019

  • Objective

    The primary objective is to compare the clinical outcome and cost efficacy of both operative techniques. The outcome measures will be determined by three clinical variables: 1. post-operative displacement 2. reduction 3. maintenance of reduction. The cost-associated outcomes will be measured by three variables: 1. implant cost 2. cost for the duration of OR time 3. number of visits to the OR.

  • Key Eligibility

    The inclusion criteria will be based on patients over the age of 18 who received anterior pelvic fixation for their fracture. There will be no inclusion bias based on race or ethnicity as this is not being evaluated as variable in this study. The first 50 patient charts from each group (total 100 from both groups) will be selected in a retrospective manner that could have received either procedure to treat their pelvic fracture.
