Tibial Fractures clinical trials at UCSF
3 in progress, 2 open to new patients

  • A Multicenter Randomized Trial Comparing IM Nails and Plate Fixation in Proximal Tibial Fractures

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This study looks at two types of surgical treatments and hopes to answer the question: which is the best way to surgically treat a proximal tibia fracture? Both procedures being studied are standard of care (used routinely) and use FDA approved devices. All medical and surgical treatment will be the same for participants as non-participants.

  • Assessment of Fixation Strategies for Severe Open Tibia Fractures

    open to eligible people ages 18–64

    The purpose of this study is to compare the use of modern ring external fixation versus internal fixation for fracture stabilization of severe open tibia fractures.

  • rhBMP-2 Versus Autograft in Critical Size Tibial Defects

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of our study is to evaluate the use of recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein 2 (RhBMP-2) as compared to standard ICBG in the treatment of severe open tibia fractures with a critical size bone defect (at least one centimeter in length compromising at least 50% of the circumference of the bone).
