Analgesia Prescribing Patterns for Pediatric ACL Reconstruction or Repair

October 13–December 12, 2020

Fill Out the Survey

Purpose: Significant variability exists in the literature and in clinical practice in regard to analgesia prescribing patterns, namely in the utilization of opioid pain medications. With the rise in incidence of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries in recent years, we are interested in better understanding the range of practices and factors that influence treatment decisions following ACL surgery in the pediatric population. As such, the goal of this survey is to help establish an expert consensus on current preemptive and postoperative analgesia practices.

Management of Hormonal Contraceptives During the Perioperative Period for Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction

September 21–March 22, 2021

Fill Out the Survey

Purpose: We have created this survey in an effort to better understand common practice patterns among surgeons caring for patients on hormonal contraception undergoing ACL reconstruction, including venous thromboembolism prophylaxis. Our hope is that a better understanding of current practice patterns can lead to further discussion to help all surgeons better care for this patient population.

Management of Post-Traumatic Knee Hemarthrosis in Young, Non-Hemophilic Patients

September 28, 2020–September 28, 2021

Fill Out the Survey

Purpose: This is a survey-based study of orthopedic practices for the management of post-traumatic knee hemarthrosis in non-hemophilic patients less than 25 years of age. Complications of knee hemarthrosis are well-documented and significant. There is currently no standard treatment guideline for this population despite the detrimental acute and long-term complications of intra-articular bleeds. We developed a questionnaire based on literature review and known diagnostic tests and interventions to help determine the most widely practiced management strategies by healthcare providers in orthopedic surgery. Our goal is to publish our findings to provide data for future development of a treatment guideline for post-traumatic knee hemarthrosis in young, non-hemophilic patients. is made possible by displaying online advertisements to our visitors.
