MacOrtho is excited to announce that the HEALTH study has reached their target enrollment. On May 15th they enrolled their 1500th patient with a displaced femoral neck fracture and reached 100% of their enrollment target!
HEALTH is an investigator-initiated trial, which began as a pilot study funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) in 2008. HEALTH is a multi-centre, blinded, randomized trial that aims to compare revision surgery rates at 24 months in patients over 50 years of age who are randomized to either Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA) or Hemi-Arthroplasty (HA). Secondary objectives include comparing health-related quality of life, functional outcomes, mobility and complications in patients receiving either THA or HA.
