Sports related injuries account for 30 to 40% of all unintentional injuries, and sports accidents are the leading cause of injury in young adults. Sports injuries have lifelong effects on young individuals as growth plate injuries can interfere with skeletal growth and cause them to be unable to participate in physical activity. There is need for additional research due to the lack of data on the long-term effects of these injuries and the increasing prevalence of sports injuries.

CURRENT STUDIES

STABILITY

STAbiLiTY is a nationwide randomized control trial of over 600 ACL deficient patients to compare outcomes between patients who receive anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) surgery and patients who received ACL with a lateral extra-articular tenodesis. Outcomes including failure rate, strength, function, range of motion, and quality of life will be evaluated two years post-operatively. 

Principal Investigator: Dr. Devin Peterson

FIRST

FIRST is a 220-patient multinational trial evaluating the effect of arthroscopic osteochondroplasty in comparison to arthroscopic lavage on pain, function, and quality of life at 12 and 24 months in patients aged 18-50 diagnosed with femoroacetabular impingement. Enrollment for this trial was completed in November 2017.

Principal Investigator: Dr. Olufemi R. Ayeni

FIRST-EPIC

FIRST EPIC is a 110-patient embedded prospective cohort study within the FIRST trial to allow for the evaluation of both efficacy and effectiveness of the osteochondroplasty and lavage interventions. Enrollment for this study was completed in November 2017

Principal Investigator: Dr. Olufemi R. Ayeni

PREVIEW

PREVIEW is an international, 50-patient pilot prospective cohort study that will evaluate the impact of sport activity and the development of hip impingement during the critical phase of hip maturation. The study aims to determine if the level and type of sport activity is associated with the development of hip deformities, and, if the presence of hip deformity (i.e. cam morphology) is associated with varying hip function and health related quality of life in the paediatric population at 2 years. 

Principal Investigator: Dr. Olufemi R. Ayeni

​Knee Arthroscopy Wait Times Project

The Knee Arthroscopy Wait Times project is a prospective study that is evaluating the effect of extended wait times between initial consult and surgery date on patient quality of life, physical functional, and mental health.  

Principal Investigator: Dr. Devin Peterson
