Dr. GhertOn March 27, 2014, Dr. Michelle Ghert visited University of Connecticut (UCONN) Orthopaedic Surgery as a Visiting Professor. As part of her visit she presented a talk entitled, “Prophylactic Antibiotic Regimens in Tumor Surgery (PARITY): An International Collaborative Network” to provide insight to the methodology and clinical relevance of the PARITY trial. UCONN will be opening to PARITY enrollment by the end of this month.

PARITY is a multi-center, blinded, randomized controlled trial, using a parallel two-arm design to investigate whether long term postoperative antibiotic regimens (5 days) will decrease the rate of infection among patients being surgically treated for a lower extremity bone tumor, when compared to short term postoperative antibiotics (24 hours).
