McMaster Led Hip Fracture Trial Sets New Benchmark for Enrolment - Over 1000 Patients Around the World!

Published: April 4th, 2014

MacOrtho is proud to announce that on March 31st, 2014 the Fixation Using Alternative Implants for the Treatment of Hip Fractures (FAITH) trial completed enrollment. With 1,112 patients recruited from 81 clinical sites in 8 different countries, the FAITH Study team is very proud of this accomplishment as few trials in the field of Orthopaedics achieve this level of enrollment.

Funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and National Institutes of Health, FAITH was predicated on the hypothesis that fixed angle devices may reduce reoperation risk compared to multiple screw fixation in femoral neck fracture fixation.

“FAITH is yet another shining example of a fundamental question for a critically important health care issue that has the potential to shift the paradigm of care” says Dr. Bhandari.
