After months of waiting to hear about OrthoCarolina Research Institute’s 37 submissions to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeon’s Annual Meeting, we all received great news. We are pleased to announce that 19 OCRI abstracts from four subspecialties were accepted to be featured as either a poster or podium presentation.

Having such a high acceptance rate from a competitive national meetingĀ is a testament to the timely and relevant research coming out of OrthoCarolina.

Please find the list of accepted AAOS abstracts below:

Foot and Ankle Research

  1. Fusion Rates of Ankle Arthrodesis with Anterior Plate Fixation Based on Computerized Tomography and Clinical Outcomes
  2. Mortality and Conversion Rate to Below Knee or Above Knee Amputation Following Transmetatarsal Amputation
  3. First MTP Fusion

Hand and Wrist Research

  1. The Prevalence of Depression and PTSD in Adults with Traumatic Upper Extremity Amputations
  2. Obtaining the Requisite Signals to Allow Independent Digital Control of a Myoelectric Prosthesis with the Starfish Procedure
  3. Complications After Acute Distal Triceps Tears: An Analysis of 107 Cases
  4. Predicting Return to Work After Carpal Tunnel Surgery

Hip and Knee Research

  1. Does Surgical Approach or Intra-Operative Imaging have the Greatest Effect on Component Position Accuracy in THA?
  2. Radiologist Overreads Of Intraoperative Radiographs- Value or Waste?
  3. Complications in the treatment of Periprosthetic Joint Infection after THA: When do they occur?
  4. Results of Debridement Antibiotics and Implant Retention for PJI with the Use of Intraosseous Antibiotics
  5. Failure to Medically Optimize Increases Complications after Primary Total Hip Arthroplasty
  6. Failure to optimize prior to total knee arthroplasty: Which modifiable risk factor is the most dangerous?
  7. Fate of Two Stage I&D

Sports Research

  1. Total Joint Arthroplasty and Golf Play: Analysis of a State-Wide Golf Handicap Database
  2. Clinical and Radiological Outcomes after Meniscal Root Repair: a case series with prospective follow-up
  3. A Comparison of Patient Reported and Clinical Outcomes Following Fibular and Combined Tibial-Fibular-Based Reconstruction of the Posterolateral Corner of the Knee: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
  4. Outcomes of Posterior Labral Repair with or without Concomitant High-Grade Glenohumeral Chondral Pathology: a retrospective cohort with minimum 2-year follow-up
  5. Intraoperative and Early (90-Day) Postoperative Complications and Associated Variables with Multiligamentous Knee Reconstruction

Countless hours, months, and often years of research goes into a single accepted abstract. That effort and time is not lost on the research team at OCRI.

Congratulations to everyone involved in these research projects. This recognition is well deserved.
