After the successful completion of the pilot, we are pleased to announce that Dr. Olufemi Ayeni recruited the first patient for the definitive Femoroacetabular Impingement RandomiSed controlled trial (FIRST) in October 2014. This marks the first step in initiating this CIHR-funded randomised trial in a field that has become one of the most popular clinical scenarios in orthopaedic surgery. FIRST is a multinational trial that compares two surgical interventions (arthroscopic osteochondroplasty and arthroscopic lavage) for the treatment of patients with femoroacetabular impingement.
